9780002316767: The Pale Horse (Agatha Christie Collection)

Volume 62 in the Agatha Christie Collection (1961)
Limited edition of 1000 copies worldwide

To understand the strange goings on at The Pale Horse Inn, Mark Easterbrook knew he had to begin at the beginning. But where exactly was the beginning?

Was it the savage blow to the back of Father Gorman’s head? Or the priest’s visit, just minutes before, to a woman on her death bed? Or was there a deeper significance to the violent squabble which Mark Easterbrook had himself witnessed earlier?

Review:

‘Wholesale murder by black magic…highly ingenious, wholly enjoyable.’ Evening Standard

‘The story holds unflaggingly, and holds with a grip which is gentle as well as firm.’ Times Literary Supplement

‘This is the formal detective story in all its glory.’ New York Times

From the Back Cover:

To understand the strange goings on at The Pale Horse Inn, Mark Easterbrook knew he had to begin at the beginning. But where exactly was the beginning?

Was it the savage blow to the back of Farther Gorman's head? Or the priest's visit, just minutes before, to a woman on her death bed? Or was there a deeper significance to the violent squabble which Mark Easterbrook had himself witnessed earlier?
AGATHA CHRISTIE was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. her enduring success, enhanced by ,any film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.
