9780720613902: Agatha Christie and the Eleven Missing Days: The Revised and Expanded 2011 Edition

NOW UNDER OPTION TO A HOLLYWOOD FILM COMPANYIn December 1926, Agatha Christie disappeared in bizarre circumstances from her home in Berkshire, England. The discovery of the crime writer's abandoned car led to the biggest manhunt in British history for a missing person. Eleven days later she was found over two hundred miles away in a northern spa town, claiming to be the victim of amnesia.
            Up till the publication of this book in 1998 none of her biographers had come up with conclusive evidence as to what she did during the first twenty-four hours after she disappeared or whether her memory loss was genuine. Although the newspaper headlines made Agatha Christie famous, the private anguish that surrounded the episode ensured she made no reference to it in her memoirs.
            Jared's Cade's number one bestselling biography - on which a BBC television documentary has been based - provides the answers to the mystery, including Agatha Christie's long forgotten explanation of the notorious episode, along with startling accounts by her relatives that reveal for the first time why she staged the disappearance with the help of a co-conspirator and how it all went terribly wrong. His sympathetic investigation reveals the incidents that shaped her character and how the fall-out from the disappearance affected the rest of her life.
            Illustrated with 48 photographs, many of them from private albums, this fully expanded 2011 edition draws on a newly discovered cache of family papers, diaries and letters, to which Jared Cade was given exclusive access, and reveals even more fascinating secrets about her life and works. Agatha Christie and the Eleven Missing Days: The Revised and Expanded 2011 Edition is a must for all Christie devotees.            'Jared Cade is an authority on Christiana, and Agatha Christie and the Eleven Missing Days has received much acclaim for its impressively detailed examination of the Queen of Crime's disappearance.' - Crime Time

About the Author:

NUMBER ONE bestselling author Jared Cade was born in 1962 and lives in London. He is a lifelong fan of Agatha Christie, and in 1993 he appeared on The 64,000 Dollar Qestion, correctly answering all questions on his specialist subject of Agatha Christie's novels and winning what was then British television's biggest cash prize.            While researching his biography about Agatha Christie's life he located several short stories she had written in the 1920s that had escaped detection by scholars for decades. In 1997 they were published for the first time in the collection While the Light Lasts. He also traced copies of two missing and unpublished Agatha Christie plays, Chimneys and A Daughter's a Daughter, both of which have since been performed in Great Britain. He acted as a research consultant in 1997 for the BBC documentary series Mysteries with Carol Vorderman, which featured a segment on the writer's disappearance.            Agatha Christie and the Eleven Missing Days was first published in 1998 and still holds the distinction of being the only biography to be officially endorsed by relatives from her brother-in-law's side of the family. In 2002 Agatha Christie and the Eleven Missing Days became the basis of a television documentary for the BBC. The revised and expanded edition was published in 2011, as was Jared Cade's debut murder mystery Deadly Vendetta.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A sympathetic biography of the celebrated mystery writer that focuses on her strange disappearance in 1926. Londoner Cade, who researched a BBC documentary about Christies disappearance, pored through archives and interviewed scores of friends, relatives, police officials, and others connected to the event. On December 4, 1926, Christie vanished from her home only to be found 11 days later living in a posh hotel under a false name. The implausible story she and her husband gave out at the time was that she was suffering from amnesia. Cades simple, quite convincing explanation is that, having been informed by her husband that their marriage was over, Christie staged the disappearance to punish him. By creating clues that suggested murder, she hoped the police would pick him up for questioning, thus embarrassing him and ruining his weekend with his mistress. Cade reveals how her closest friend helped her concoct her plan and carry it out. What she had not anticipated was the length of time required to locate her, the sensational press coverage that ensued, and the intense public interest and speculation that were aroused. She embarrassed not just her husband but herself and was deeply chagrined at being suspected of arranging a publicity stunt to help her book sales. Cade recounts particulars of the search, Christie's anguish over the divorce that followed, and her subsequent marriage to another, also unfaithful husband. In tiresome detail he relates the plots, characters, and feelings expressed in her literary creationssome unremarkable romances under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott as well as the scores of mysteries for which she is best knownto painful episodes in her real life. First published in England in 1998, this uncritical biography provide a glimpse into the anguish of a writer who tried hard to keep her unhappy private life from public view. Ardent fans may be enthralled; she would be appalled. (31 b&w photos) -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
