David Suchet, TV's Poirot, has spent more of his life acting out the plots and dramas created by Agatha Christie than anyone else in the world. He now wants to embark on a journey to learn more about the woman who created him. He learns how she was born in 1890 in Torquay, England and how out of her idyllic childhood in Devon she grew to become master of the sinister world of poisons and murder. From the pastoral ideal of the British country house to the exotic mysteries of the East, her vivid construction of character and place combine to captivate readers by the millions. Suchet learns that it is not just Christie's novels that are shrouded in mystery. He investigates the adultery of her husband. A betrayal that led to her bizarre disappearance in 1926 when she faked her own death and convinced the nation she had succumbed to the same horrendous fate as the victims in her novels. Suchet explores the close links between Christie's extraordinary life and her work and discovers just what it is about this late Victorian woman from Torquay that allowed her to become the bestselling murder mystery writer in history -- a popularity that continues up to the present.
