Synopsis

'A novel that literally out-Christies Agatha. An exciting, moving and delightful read' - JANICE HALLETT, bestselling author of The Appeal

'This is a book which has it all' - ELIZABETH MACNEAL, bestselling author of The Doll Factory


In 1926, Agatha Christie disappeared for 11 days. Only I know the truth of her disappearance.

I’m no Hercule Poirot.
I’m her husband’s mistress.


Agatha Christie’s world is one of glamorous society parties, country house weekends, and growing literary fame.

Nan O’Dea’s world is something very different. Her attempts to escape a tough London upbringing during the Great War led to a life in Ireland marred by a hidden tragedy.

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 eleven days that Agatha goes missing, they will unravel a dark secret that only Nan holds the key to . . .

The Christie Affair is a stunning novel which reimagines the unexplained eleven-day disappearance of Agatha Christie in 1926 that captivated the world.

'Elegant, ingenious and hugely enjoyable' - AJ PEARCE, bestselling author of Dear Mrs Bird and Yours, Cheerfully

'A genuine marvel' - KRISTIN HANNAH, bestselling author of Firefly Lane and The Four Winds

Nina De Gramont’s beautifully written imaginative history of Agatha Christie's disappearance plays out alongside a parallel murder mystery that could have flowed straight from the pen of the great AC herself. An inspired tapestry of fact and fiction places the story perfectly in its historical context. The result is a novel that literally out-Christies Agatha. An exciting, moving and delightful read

Janice Hallett, bestselling author of The Appeal

I was enthralled, moved and entertained by The Christie Affair. This is a book which has it all - romance, enigma and wit in bucketloads. What's more, its devilishly good plot could out-do those written by Agatha Christie herself

Elizabeth Macneal, bestselling author of The Doll Factory and The Circus of Wonders

Elegant, ingenious and hugely enjoyable, Nina de Gramont’s The Christie Affair is both an infamous mystery wonderfully explored, and a compelling story of love, adversity, determination and hope
