Jordan Bingham a recent college graduate finds herself retreating back to her home town of Harrison Falls. Due to lack of employment and the fact her ex has maxed out her credit cards. Now she is living with her uncle's above their could be, could be not so on the level antique shop. Luckily she lands what she believes will be a great job after some resistance from her new employer Miss Van Alst, one of the town's most hated resident's. Jordan has been set to hunt down a possible unpublished play by Agatha Christie written during her eleven day disappearance in 1926.
But soon enough Jordan is faced with the fact that the last employee of Miss Van Alst died under suspicious circumstances, a stalker cop, grieving parent's/fiance, multiple attacks on the contacts she has made to try and find the manuscript and her employer's Dr. Jehkyl/Mr.Hyde cat. With only the lessons learned by her band of uncles to keep going and learn the truth will she find out who is behind all this tragedy and find the manuscript too.
I loved the story of Jordan tracking down this supposed lost manuscript and all the twists and turns. And it is a great take on what Agatha Christie could have done with her disappearance. I look forward to reading the next one.
