Was it revenge? Was it publicity stunt? Was it truly amnesia? Could there have been a paranormal connection and a real message from the author, herself?
The Christies immediately went into seclusion, and several doctors were called in; they put out the story that Agatha was suffering from amnesia brought on by grief over her mother's death. Virtually no one believed this, though, and Agatha's subsequent refusal ever to discuss the matter--she made no mention of it in her autobiography--has fueled speculation among mystery buffs that continues to this day. The most plausible explanation is that she simply wanted to get away from a bad situation and embarrass her husband at the same time. At any rate, the two were divorced in 1928 and she later married archaeologist Max Mallowan.
