Nothing is what it seems…

Some people want to be fooled…

1920s, London

Agatha Christie, the famous detective writer, is struggling to come to terms with her divorce. So much so that she can barely bring herself to say the word.

To add to her despondency, she can’t shake off the cutting words of a recent critic… utterly unlikely… a plot like clockwork…

Her friends rally around and encourage her to get out of the house, meet up with friends, go to the theatre…

Reluctantly, she attends a variety show with an old friend, and following a dramatic and violent turn of events at the theatre, discovers that life can, and does in fact, imitate art.

Perhaps she can find a new style…

Her musings lead her to her own investigations to uncover the truth behind the ‘facts’, and in doing so, she must face her own demons.

Death in Disguise is a whodunnit with an introspective slant, creating false realities whilst revealing the truth, in a fantastic smoke and mirrors mystery novel…

I enjoyed this third instalment of the Agatha Christie mysteries.  I do hope that there will be more to come, as they are well plotted and written.  With plenty of twists and turns that will keep you guessing till the end.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. Published by Endeavour Press and downloaded via NetGalley.
