Agatha Christie, author of 80 novels and stories, maintained a secretive personal life. Using Christie’s autobiography, previously unpublished letters and notes, plus interviews with those who knew her, author Richard Hack draws an indelible portrait of the real woman. From his first words, narrator Nicolas Coster’s voice commands attention. Coster’s star-quality performance captures every intriguing nuance in Hack’s novel-like retelling of Christie’s life, complete with its mystery, romance, and scandal. As her troubled first marriage was ending, Christie disappeared for 11 days, but her disappearance was only one of many episodes that colored the normally publicity-shy Christie’s life. Hack’s fascinating recounting, enhanced by Coster’s superb narration, guarantees that listeners will enjoy this unauthorized biography almost as much as they do Christie’s mysteries. S.J.H.
