A different kind of Agatha Christie mystery

In 1926, mystery writer Agatha Christie was the focus of a real-life mysterious disapperance–her own.  Authorities in England conducted a search for the missing Christie, whose trail included an abandoned car. The author reappeared 11 days later, claiming amnesia and providing no explanations for her time away. Boston College alumna Marie Benedict explores those unaccounted-for days in her new historical fiction novel, The Mystery of Mrs. Christie (Sourcebooks Landmark, 2020). Benedict is a bestselling author whose novels have focused on untold stories of women, including Clementine Churchill, Hedy Lamarr, and Albert Einstein’s wife, Mileva Maric. Last month, the Washington Post picked The Mystery of Mrs. Christie as one of its best reads of December, and the pop culture blog PopSugar called Benedict’s book “compelling.”
