This is the ninth Kate Shackleton novel from Frances Brody and another triumph in my opinion. Clues and red herrings abound in this book set in 1927 in which Kate, a private enquiry agent, is drawn into investigating the mysterious death of a theatre performer.
Andrew Wilson utilises both in-depth historical research and his imagination to create an intricate and ingenious story line to explain the mysterious disappearance of Agatha Christie in December 1926. This is an extraordinary novel due to both the subject matter and the way it has been handled and written by Andrew Wilson. I highly recommend it.
My Chronicle Book Box Review: I came upon this book quite by chance. I was in the vacuum experienced after finishing a good book that leaves you wanting more, but there is not yet another in the series, when I was alerted that an author I follow had read a later book in this series.
