Agatha and the Midnight Murders

As bombs fall on London in 1940 during the Blitz, Agatha Christie considers selling a manuscript that will kill off her most famous creation — Hercule Poirot. Christie reckons she should be a rich woman after writing 12 novels about the Belgian detective in six years. Instead, the author struggles with money and is under investigation by tax authorities in America and the UK. But she has a plan: sell the novel of Poirot’s death to a superfan private buyer who will pay an enormous sum to keep the fictional detective alive.
