A divorce case involving a landowner and his young wife spirals into something darker, drawing Whicher into the heart of the English countryside where he uncovers the most disturbing and destructive of secrets.
The opening card states that the details of Christie's disappearance on 3 December 1926 have never been revealed. She was found 10 days later at a spa in the country registered as Mrs Tressa Neele (the surname of her husband's lover). Speculation as to her state of mind during this time remains a mystery; with some believing she was suffering temporary amnesia, or deliberately trying to embarrass her husband even to the point of framing him for her murder, or simply hiding. The incident was not mentioned by Christie in her autobiography. See more »
I know what it's like to kill by proxy; this isn't it.

I was in need of a good mystery and this was perfect. I needed a semi-cozy mystery and this filled the bill. It was entertaining to watch and can be added to all the other explanations of what may have happened to Agatha Christie during her 9 day disappearance. If we can enjoy the Doctor Who episode "The Unicorn and the Wasp", we should be able to enjoy this one too!
