A Different Kind of Evil (Agatha Christie Series, Book #2) by Andrew Wilson
January 1927. Agatha Christie is on board a luxury liner bound for the exotic Canary Islands. But this is no vacation for the world-famous mystery writer; she is traveling at the behest of the British Secret Service, which wants her to investigate the murder of Douglas Greene, a brilliant young agent who met an untimely and gruesome end. Mid-voyage, a new tragedy casts a shadow over the ship when Christie hears a scream and witnesses a young woman flinging herself over the rails to her certain death.
After arriving at the idyllic Grand Hotel nestled in a lush valley on the island of Tenerife, Mrs. Christie meets an eccentric and fascinating cast of characters, several of whom prove to have good reason to be on her list of suspects. Far from home and uncertain of herself, Christie must rely on her unrivaled understanding of the criminal mind in order to find the truth. But she comes to learn that murder in the real world is very different from murder on the page.
