    1. One of a trend to craft stories around famous historical figures The writing is wooden and the plot extremely iffy.

    2. Andrew Wilson has a clever premise here he has superimposed a quasi Strangers on a Train plot on Agatha Christie s actual 1926 disappearance via a crazed doctor who blackmails Christie into murdering his wife Wilson has done his research clearly he has read Christie s Autobiography as well as Jared Cade s Agatha Christie and the Eleven Missing Days Aside from the fictional doctor plot, most of the details of Christie s life before and during the disappearance are accurate, though Wilson is unkin [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this book I like the way the author was able to take so many facts from the time of her disappearance and use them to make a fictional story Everything flowed naturally too It didn t feel like parts of the story were forced in order to make any of the facts fit I did find the beginning a little slow and I could have done without the poor dog s paw being cut off but, overall, I really liked it.

    4. What a great book about Agatha Christie I had never heard of her going missing and found the book completely intriguing It has enough fact and embellishment to totally captivate it s readers Mr Andrew Wilson is a talented writer, looking forward to his next book.

    5. Very creative Well written I ve read everything Agatha Christie published and I think the author of this novel captured her public persona Great use of marination around known facts Highly recommend.

    6. A wonderful surprise I loved the way the author handles the narrative, and how he manages by combining facts and fiction in synchronicity A great read.
