Перевод текста № 13 MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE - Мифическое исчезновение

Агата Кристи написала несколько самых лучших историй на английском языке. Ее собственная жизнь содержит тайну которая недавно была раскрыта. История началась таким образом. В 9.45 вечера 3декабря 1926года Агата Кристи ушла из дома на Юга Англии, сказав, что она уезжает на своей машине в поездку. На следующие утро ее машина была найдена далеко разбита. Передняя часть машины была в кустах. Фары еще горели. Внутри была только какая-то женская одежда и водительские права Агаты Кристи.

Детектив ведущий это дело Уильям Кенуорд тут же организовал на этой территории поиск. Полицейские прибыли с разных частей страны помочь в поиске, даже были приглашены некоторые известные писатели детективы.

Арчи Кристи, муж, Агаты Кристи рассказал всем его жена страдала амнезии. Однако, вскоре полиция раскрыла, что брак Арчи и Агатой Кристи был несчастливым. У Арчи и Агаты были проблемы. Но он не мог признать, что его брак неудачный потому что люди могли подумать, что он что-то сделал, чтоб она исчезла.

Поэтому поводу полицая получила письмо. В письме Агата рассказывала брату Арчи, что она собирается в Йорк Шае, Харагейт. Полицая поехала туда и искала ее во всех отелях но они не нашли Агату Кристи поскольку она не использовала свое настоящие имя. Вместо этого она представлялась как Нил гостя из Южной Африки.

Ситуация была очень грустная для полиции поскольку они ее не нашли. Но тут музыканты танцевальной группы узнали ее.

В эту историю нелегко было поверить. И фактически большинство людей не поверили в это. Но все, что мы знаем теперь, что она это сделала не для публикации. Она это сделала поскольку у нее был трудный период с мужем. Позже фактически их брак распался и они развелись. Однако ее исчезновение сделала Агату Кристи самой популярной писательницей о преступлениях в стране.
