9780007139675: Taken at the Flood: Complete & Unabridged (Hercule Poirot)

When Gordon Cloade dies and leaves his wife a widow for the second time, she inherits the family fortune. Cloade's sister believes the lady's first "dead" husband is actually alive and claims the "spirits" as her source of information. Poirot, unconvinced, is mystified by her true motives.

Review:

‘One of the best… her gift for blending the cosy with the macabre has seldom been more in evidence than it is here.’
Elizabeth Bowen, Tatler

‘Told briskly, vivaciously, and with ever-fertile imagination.’
Manchester Evening News

‘One of the better Christies… Don’t miss.’
New York Herald Tribune

From the Back Cover:

'"There's a tide in the affairs of man which, taken at the flood, leads onto fortune…"

'The unfortunate Gordon Cloade's fortune to be precise. Killed in a bombing raid during London's Blitz, his entire fortune has passed to his young wife, the former Mrs Underhay.

Gordon's blood relatives are less than happy, however – so, it seems, are 'the spirits' who have communicated their doubts to Hercule Poirot.

Caught between a fortune and some hard-up relations, Poirot must do all he can to prevent Rosaleen joining her detractors on 'the other side'…

"Told briskly, vivaciously, and with ever-fertile imagination"
'Manchester Evening News'
