Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review


Editors' pick: Every page is a revelation, and Benedict builds this tale of a marriage on the rocks to a flawless finale."—Adrian Liang, Amazon Editor

Review

"It's not a whodunit or even a whydunit, but a sort of how-the-hell-did-he-do-it? As Christie's first and best-known detective, Hercule Poirot, might say: Patience. All will be revealed." - The Los Angeles Times

"[A] gripping historical fiction tale of true mystery." - Good Morning America

"Benedict shines as a suspense writer." - Christian Science Monitor

"[Marie Benedict] keeps the reader guessing: Which narrator is reliable? Who is the real villain? A compelling portrait of a marriage gone desperately sour." - Kirkus Reviews

"The clever premise here is that Christie vanished deliberately so as to ensnare Archie in a trap as payback for his infidelities... the story makes for good fun." - Publishers Weekly

"Mystery lovers, especially fans of Christie's works, as well as those who enjoy period pieces, will find this an engrossing fictional answer to a real historical mystery." - Library Journal

"Girl power advocates will find satisfaction in the solution she crafts to her man problem." - Booklist

"If you're an ardent Agatha Christie fan, don't miss The Mystery of Mrs. Christie." - HuffPost

"[A] clever reconstruction of Agatha Christie's mysterious 11-day disappearance in 1926." - E! News

"With elements of a classic mystery novel, The Mystery of Mrs. Christie is gripping, making it possible to believe that, with her real-life disappearance, Agatha Christie surpassed herself and pulled off the perfect, unsolvable mystery." - Foreword Reviews

"A winning whodunit from the thrilling life story of the mistress of whodunits, Agatha Christie herself, THE MYSTERY OF MRS CHRISTIE is a deft, fascinating page-turner replete with richly drawn characters and plot twists that would stump Hercule Poirot." - Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Alice Network, The Huntress, and the upcoming The Rose Code

"With twists, surprises, and an ending that packs a punch in more ways than one, THE MYSTERY OF MRS. CHRISTIE is a whodunit infinitely worthy of its famous heroine. Benedict's exploration of Agatha Christie's life and mysterious disappearance will have book club discussions running overtime. Quite simply, I loved it!" - Lisa Wingate, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours and The Book of Lost Friends

"Brilliantly constructed and richly detailed, THE MYSTERY OF MRS. CHRISTIE is both a twisty mystery and immersive portrait of the domestic and professional life of the legendary Agatha Christie. This is a must-read for fans of Agatha Christie." - Chanel Cleeton, New York Times & USA Today bestselling Author of The Last Train to Key West and Next Year in Havana

"THE MYSTERY OF MRS. CHRISTIE is part domestic thriller, part Golden Age mystery—and all Marie Benedict! An absorbing and immersive plunge into the disturbed private life of one of the world's most beloved authors, who confounded police, journalists, and generations of biographers when she disappeared from her home, like something out of one of her own novels. But you just might find a solution to the puzzle here.... (No Belgian detectives required. Knitting spinsters sold separately.)" - Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author

"What a read! Agatha Christie is so beautifully drawn, you could easily believe Benedict knew her intimately. Each page uncovers fresh layers of pain, rage, genius and suffering, culminating with a firecracker of an ending. I loved it." - Stuart Turton, bestselling author of The Devil and the Dark Water and The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
