During World War II, ten displaced children stayed at Agatha Christie's country home, while London was bombed by the Germans. Inspired by this fascinating, little-known fact, Death at Greenway re-imagines what it would have been like to hide away from the war in a murder novelist's house. The result is a dark, twisting novel about nurses who come to Greenway to care for evacuated children … but when a body is discovered nearby, the idyllic setting becomes host to a deadly mystery.
