Agatha Christie: In 1926, my husband announced that he was leaving me for the weekend to stay with his mistress. Distraught, I drove my car to the edge of a lake, left my clothes, and famously disappeared. A nationwide, frantic search took place scouring the land for me, causing a media sensation. During the 10 Day Disappearance, I was hiding here, at the Old Swan Hotel. I had assumed the name of Mrs. Neele, which was also the surname of my husband's mistress.
