Today's giveaway is AGATHA CHRISTIE by Laura Thompson.
I have chosen this book because today is the 120th Anniversary of Agatha Christie's birth.
We have been celebrating this since the beginning of the month with the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge Blog Tour. and the celebrations will continue until 30th September.
A passionate and accomplished writer, Laura Thompson now turns her highly acclaimed biographical skills to Agatha Christie.
Arguably the greatest crime writer in the world, thirty years after her death Christie's books still sell over four million copies worldwide a year.
Thompson describes the Edwardian world in which she grew up, explores the relationships she had, including those with her two husbands and daughter, and investigates the mysteries still surrounding Christie's life - including her disappearance in 1926.
Agatha Christie is a mystery and writing about her is a detection job in itself.
But, with access to all of Christie's letters, papers and writing notebooks, as well as interviews with her grandson, daughter, son-in-law and their living relations, Thompson is able to unravel not only the detailed workings of Christies detective fiction, but the truth behind her private life as well.
