Newlands corner where Agatha Christie's car was found abandoned in sinister circumstances

‘A brilliant job of research... Jared Cade has succeeded where all we other writers failed to trace what really happened to Agatha on the night of the disappearance.’ Gwen Robyns, author of The Mystery of Agatha Christie

‘A fascinating account.’ – Wall Street Journal

‘A real page-turner.’ – Daily Telegraph

‘This is the only biography that tells Agatha’s life story as it really was. Jared Cade’s insight into her personality is unsurpassed.’ Judith and Graham Gardner, relatives of Agatha Christie

‘Jared Cade paints a brilliant picture of the tabloid press turning a disappearance and a possible murder hunt into a national jamboree, complete with day outings, picnics and all the pleasures of the chase. His book is a must.’ Robert Barnard, author of A Talent to Deceive: An Appreciation of Agatha Christie

‘A wonderfully sympathetic and detailed biography requiring extensive research, which was made possible by a part of Agatha’s family, who were prepared to open up their archives and memories. Certainly a book that any real fan of Agatha should have; it still keeps her image as glowing as ever, but with the benefit of a deep human story.’ Vanessa Wagstaff, author of Agatha Christie: A Reader’s Companion

‘Jared Cade's new biography is valuable for the detail in which he examines her 11-day disappearance... His meticulously researched and interestingly illustrated volume is fascinating to read.’ Charles Osborne, author of The Life and Crimes of Agatha Christie

‘Jared Cade has unearthed the Queen of Crime’s long lost account of her disappearance from seven decades ago. He has proved himself to be a detective so meticulous and thorough that Agatha herself would have been proud.’ – Sarah French, Northern Echo

‘Agatha Christie's greatest mystery was her strange disappearance in December 1926. The already well-known writer's car was found abandoned in Surrey. After vast publicity she was found, claiming to be suffering from amnesia, in a Harrogate hotel. Jared Cade, in a well researched and attractively written book, unravels the mystery and explains how and why she fled from her husband. Although the book concentrates on this dramatic event, the author shows how echoes of the disappearance turned up in her later writings. The book is especially good in describing her second marriage and provides depth and texture to the life of one of the most popular writers of all time.’ – Contemporary Review

‘Jared Cade not only traces the disturbing events of the lost eleven days and their far-reaching repercussions; he also throws considerable light on the personality of a complex character, her sufferings (her second husband also deceived her), her frustrations, her achievements.’ – Keswick Reminder

‘Cade’s riveting, stylish procedural’ – Publishers Weekly

‘A gripping detective story’ – Harpers and Queen

‘Affectionate and objective’ – Alan Travis, Guardian

‘This thoughtful and absorbing inquiry lends credible dimension to the complex life story of mystery’s most celebrated practitioner. Well done!’ – Sue Grafton

‘Jared Cade is an acknowledged expert 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
