‘On the Blue Train’ is Kristel Thornell’s depiction of Agatha Christie’s unexplained disappearance for 11 days in 1926. Set in London, this story is a mixture of fact and fiction. Agatha goes under the alias of Teresa Neele and gives herself a background of being a widow. This is Kristen’s second novel – a gentle book that takes you back to 1926 and the spa hotel where ‘Teresa’ has chosen to stay in solitude. However, not for long, as she meets a man staying at the same hotel – Harry McKenna, an Australian escaping from a broken marriage.
