Inspired by the disappearance of Agatha Christie in 1926, Nina de Gramont weaves fact and fiction into a deftly constructed mystery.
Agatha Christie’s world is one of glamorous society parties, country house weekends and literary fame. Nan O’Dea’s world is very different – her attempts to escape London during the Great War led to a life in Ireland marred by a hidden tragedy.
