Description

  • Great product!
  • Although she is the most popular novelist in history, with over two billion books sold worldwide, Agatha Christie lived
    a life shrouded in secrecy and fueled by curiosity. Nearly as notorious for her aversion to the press as she was for her
    80 books and collections of short stories, Christie made no secret of her need for privacy. Utilizing over 5,000
    previously unpublished letters, notes, and documents, award-winning biographer Richard Hack allows Christie to write
    again, 33 years after her death. Duchess of Death is her story, as full of romance, travel, wealth, and scandal as any
    mystery Christie ever crafted.

    There have been numerous biographies of the Queen of Crime, all of which claim to be definitive. However, Duchess of
    Death is the first to draw from such an enormous number of previously unpublished correspondence and notes, effectively
    establishing it as the most authoritative, penetrating look at the personal and literary life of Christie.
