Review:

"No one can write [a novel], complete with genealogical tree, a dubious will, and a family full of potential murderers, so well as Christie, nor can anyone so consistently devise plot tricks to delight without reservation". -- New York Times

From the Back Cover:

AFTER THE FUNERAL

When Cora is savagely murdered with a hatchet, the extraordinary remark she made the previous day at her brother Richard’s funeral suddenly takes on a chilling significance.

At the reading of Richard’s will, Cora was clearly heard to say: ‘It’s been hushed up very nicely, hasn’t it…But he 'was' murdered, wasn’t he?’

In desperation, the family solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery.

'Agatha Christie' was born in Torquay 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 many film and TV adaptations, is attribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.

“Keeps us guessing – and guessing wrongly – to the very last page”
LIVERPOOL POST
