"The life of Agatha Christie was as mysterious and eventful as her fiction. This insightful, surprising and definitive graphic novel traces the life of the Queen of the Whodunit from her childhood in Torquay, through a career filled with success, drama and adventure, to her later years as “Dame Agatha”. Revealing a side to Christie that will startle and delight many readers, Agatha introduces us to a free-spirited and thoroughly modern woman who, among other things, enjoyed flying, travel and surfing. Centring around an episode in 1926 when Christie staged her own disappearance, Agatha is a fast-paced, intriguing and enlightening exploration of the twentieth century’s best-loved crime novelist"-- Provided by publisher.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which is essentially a graphic biography of author Agatha Christie. As well as writing many famed mystery novels, she lived quite a life, filled with its own mystery at times. Defnitely recommend for any fans of Christie.

Great illustrations and enjoyed learning a bit about Christie's complex life. She dealt with numerous hardships but remained an independent adventurer all her life. I enjoyed Martinetti's take on Christie's inner world as she interacts with Poirot, Marple, etc. Recommended for Christie fanatics and those who are new to her works.
