A new suspense-themed housing tract on the edge of the Mojave Desert is about to open, and who better to help promote the Cotswold-cozy development than mystery biographer extraordinaire Cece Caruso? For the grand opening weekend, Cece is staging a play featuring the beloved sleuth Miss Marple. Of course, everything goes wrong, including a leading lady who ends up dead.

All is not well in Christietown; its secrets are as complicated as the truth behind Agatha Christie’s real-life disappearance. The developer, an Englishman who claims to be Dame Agatha’s descendent, has ruthless investors breathing down his neck. Meanwhile, Cece’s got a wedding to plan, a baby shower to give, and an ex-husband who shows up on her doorstep with his fiancée and future mother-in-law. And when another body surfaces, the intrepid amateur sleuth knows she must play the famed detective for real—or suffer the same mysterious fate.

Christie Mystery This book was an impulse buy because the idea of a housing tract up in the hot, dry, parched Antelope Valley area trying to emulate the charming little green villages of Agatha Christie’s Cotswalds was too delicious to pass up. And the book is entertaining, but as I consider it, this isn’t going to the top of my list. 

Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers says:

Disappearances and Poison Cece Caruso’s latest project is a biography of Agatha Christie. Unfortunately, her publisher seems to think it needs more work. Specifically, Cece is told to beef up the section on Agatha Christie’s mysterious disappearance during December of 1926. She has a little over a week to rework that section and get it back. 

Harriet Klausner says:

homage to Agatha Christie Cece Caruso writes biographies of mystery writers. Her backlist includes Erle Stanley Gardner (see I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason), Carole Keene (Not a Girl Detective) and Dashiell Hammett (see Shamus in the Green Room). Her current assignment involves the opening gala of Christietown, a housing development duplicating a Cotswold village where else but in California; her plan is a Miss Marple theater production.
