Nina de Gramont has given us a brilliant re-imagining of one of the most bewildering unsolved mysteries of the twentieth century in this devilishly clever novel!

The Christie Affair is a fictional tale that concocts an elaborate backstory to describe what caused, and where Agatha Christie went during her real life eleven day disappearance. The author brings to light Mr. Christie’s mistress and highlights how this other woman in the picture should not be overlooked.

The novel is narrated by Nan O’Dea, Archie Christie’s mistress, who is a complicated woman propelled towards her goals by rage, loss and grief. She will not let anyone stop her from getting what she desires even if it means stealing the husband of the Queen of Crime! What role could this calculating woman play in Agatha’s disappearance? You’ll find out in this engrossing, richly imagined, and inventive story that will transport you back in time, to when the world’s best-selling author went missing for eleven days without a trace.

In summary, this captivating novel filled with star-crossed lovers, heartbreak and new discoveries along with a mystery or two is a truly satisfying read!
