Summary, etc.:
"December 1926: England unleashes the largest manhunt in its history. The object of the search is not an escaped convict or a war criminal, but the missing wife of a WWI hero, up-and-coming mystery author Agatha Christie. When her car is found wrecked, empty, and abandoned near a natural spring, the country is in a frenzy. Eleven days later, Agatha reappears, claiming amnesia. She provides no answers for her disappearance. That is...until she writes a very strange book about a missing woman, a murderous husband, and a plan to expose the truth. What role did her unfaithful husband play? And what was he not telling investigators? THE MYSTERY OF MRS. CHRISTIE explores one strong woman's successful endeavor to take her history into her own hands"--Provided by publisher.

    In 1926, famed mystery novelist Agatha Christie is reeling from her beloved mother's death and the discovery that her husband, Archie, wants a divorce in order to marry his mistress. After a vicious fight with Archie, Agatha vanishes. Despite a police investigation and a massive search, no one knows what befell Agatha until her reappearance 11 days later. She claimed amnesia. Like others before her, including Andrew Wilson, Benedict offers a fictional take on what happened during Christie's disappearance. One story line proceeds from Archie's point-of-view as he faces a media circus, the total destruction of his privacy and reputation, and rampant suspicion that he murdered his wife. Meanwhile, Agatha recounts their relationship in a flashback, from beginning to bitter end. This is less a mystery than the chronicle of a well-meaning woman who chose her life partner poorly and finally tires of his contempt and responds in spectacular fashion. It takes a lot to turn Agatha's desperation into anger, but once that transition occurs, girl power advocates will find satisfaction in the solution she crafts to her man problem.
