She is none other than the Queen of Detective fiction - Agatha Christie! Surprised?
Here is her story:
She was loved in the literary world for her crime stories and suspense thrillers, pretty much like the character of Amy Dunne. She was married to Colonel Archie Christie and they lived in Sunningdale, Berkshire.
Something smells FISHY:
Agatha's husband Archie wanted a divorce as he had a hush-hush affair with Nancy Neele.Christie came to know about this but she had her own rules of her revenge game. Just like the twists in her book her life also got a classic one! On the night of 3rd December 1926, after having an ugly fight with her husband she left her home with only one hint- a letter addressed to her assistant which read that she went on a vacation to Yorkshire.
The Plot Thickens:
Later however, her car was found at the near corner which had her old driving licence, a bag full of clothes her famous Fur coat but only one thing was missing- Agatha herself. This disappearance later became a worldwide obsession and many other genius brains like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Dorothy L Sayers joined the investigations. The murder was suspected and the prime suspect was her cheating husband Archie Christie.
Twist In Tale:
On 14 December 1926, she was found at The Old Swan Hotel Yorkshire registered in the name Mrs. Teresa Neele. Interestingly, she borrowed the last name of her husband's lover! She was recognized by a local musician.
Surprisingly there is no reference to this incident in her autobiography, while people also suspect it to be a publicity stunt for her then releasing book The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
She sure left the world with a lot of mystery in words, books as well as her life!
