A Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick and an instant New York Times best seller.

Nina de Gramont's The Christie Affair is a stunning novel that reimagines the unexplained 11-day disappearance of Agatha Christie in 1926 that captivated the world.

After fighting her way back to England, she’s set her sights on Agatha. Because Agatha Christie has something Nan wants. And it’s not just her husband.

Despite their differences, the two women will become the most unlikely of allies. And during the mysterious 11 days that Agatha goes missing, they will unravel a dark secret that only Nan holds the key to....

Shoddy

It’s a very good job you can’t libel the dead! I like historical fiction. I love clever authors who wind imaginative possibilities around real events. Here though the author has twisted and changed the characters in the real life Christie case so far they may as well have been fictional from the start. Tie that to a revenge story based on a group of very naive and tediously maternal girls in Ireland and I was left with the feeling that the only need for the Christie family was to give the book a marketing hook. As for the ending 🤬

Beautiful story

Loved this book. I love Agatha Christie books so thought this would be one even though it was about her. Instead it was a story of Ireland and terrible wrongs but told in a beautiful sad touching way. The story kept me engaged the entire way and I learned about history as well . 10/10 for me
