Agatha Christie is generally considered the Queen of Crime Fiction. Her novels, stories and plays bamboozle legions of murder aficionados with complex plotting and dazzling denouements. But no mystery she ever wrote surpassed the one she lived. This tantalizing tale posits what may have happened to the famed writer during her real-life 11-day disappearance in 1926.

What really happened? The world doesn’t know and Dame Agatha never told. But as suspensefully directed by Michael Apted (Coal Miner’s Daughter, Gorky Park), Agatha offers a spellbinding solution.
