This encyclopedic guide contains 2,500 entries covering all aspects of the Christie phenomenon including Christie's relationships with friends, relatives, and associates; all the known facts about her mysterious 1926 10-day disappearance; chapter by chapter synopses of her mystery stories (omitting the solutions to the crimes); and coverage of film, stage, and TV adaptations of her works."--BOOK JACKET.
