Reviewed by Dawn Crawford

This is a good biography in that it contains an overwhelming amount of factual information.

As with all biographies, some sections of the person's life are speculative. This author seems to take it a step further, and tends to add her personal interpretation of the gray areas in Agatha Christie's life.

So readers beware, read the facts, and take the rest with a grain of salt.

This review is based on the Canadian printing.
