This fascinating new biography concentrates on this central mystery of the writer's life, one that was to have a profound effect on her later behavior and an episode to which she was ever afterwards profoundly anxious to avoid allusion. Cade has uncovered a wealth of startling new evidence including firsthand accounts by relatives and intimate contemporaries that make it apparent why Agatha disappeared and what she did in the first few days of her disappearance, and how it all went terribly wrong. He tells in more detail than ever before the fascinating story of the search itself, including the massive Great Sunday Hunt which involved thousands, and the intense public interest her disappearance caused -- such notables as Edgar Wallace, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Dorothy Sayers all contributed their "solutions" for publication in the press. His dramatic recounting of the feverish search and frenetic press coverage reads like a well-told mystery itself.

In December 1926 Agatha Christie disappeared from her home, Styles, in Berkshire. She was found eleven days later in a hotel in Harrogate, Yorkshire apparently suffering from amnesia. Agatha Christie and the Eleven Missing Days by Jared Cade delves into the mystery of her disappearance. The book is not just about those eleven days but is a biography that reveals how those eleven days and the events that led up to her disappearance influenced the rest of her life.

Agatha’s Autobiography is silent on the matter. She recalls how they chose Styles, remarking that it was an unlucky house and that she had felt it as soon as she moved in. She then moved swiftly on merely saying:

The next year of my life is one I hate recalling. As so often in life, when one thing goes wrong, everything goes wrong. (page 356)

Sadly she was right, as Jared Cade reveals from information given to him by Judith and Graham Gardner. Judith’s mother was Nan Watts, Agatha’s sister-in-law and life-long friend. They showed him photographs and private letters shedding light on the situation. It makes a fascinating book. I did feel as though I was intruding into Agatha Christie’s private life that she had not wanted made known but Cade writes sympathetically. ( )
