Agatha Christie's The Disappearance of Mr. Davenheim

About the Story

Agatha Christie's The Disappearance of Mr. Davenheim

Agatha Christie was born in southwest England to a wealthy family. Growing up, Christie enjoyed reading mystery novels by Wilkie Collins and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Many of Christie’s short stories were first published in periodicals and feature the eccentric Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, who later became one of Christie’s most famous characters. “The Disappearance of Mr. Davenheim” was first published in The Sketch in March 1923 in the United Kingdom and in the United States in The Blue Book Magazine in December 1923 under the title “Mr. Davenby Disappears.” The author of 66 detective novels and 15 short story collections, Christie is best known for her bestselling novel And Then There Were None and her play The Mousetrap.
