By Agatha Christie
One of Agatha Christie’s most ingenious murder mysteries! Lost in the fog, a stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house only to find a man shot dead and his wife standing over him with a smoking gun. But the woman’s dazed confession is anything but convincing and the unexpected guest decides to help. Remarkably, the police clues point to a man who died two years previously but as the ghosts of a past wrong begin to emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives, where the real murderer turns out to be the greatest mystery of all.
“There is an ingenious display of suspects, as if lids were being taken off wells of depravity and hastily put back." - Lawrence Kitchin, The Observer
"The impact is tremendous... Just when the murder seems solved ... Miss Christie pulls her almighty knock out punch. I admit her complete victory." - London Evening Standard
“It kept last night's audience in a state of stunned uncertainty; guessing wrongly to the last.” - Philip Hope-Wallace, The Guardian
