First, thank you to Edelweiss+ and Sourcebooks Landmark for providing me with this ARC.

In 1926, Agatha Christie disappeared for eleven days leaving a mystery in her wake. For those eleven days, the police interrogated her husband, her staff, and those who knew her attempting to discover what had happened to her. Marie Benedict expertly tells the story of what her husband went through and the explicit instructions she left for him. The back and forth between the story and the number of days after her disappearance makes the story flow smoothly and allows the reader to know what is going on - even if they don't realize that is what is happening.

Benedict always tells an amazing story and takes the time to understand the details behind the historical moments in time that she uses as the base for her fiction. Marie Benedict weaves an interesting story that keeps the reader invested until the very end.
