A murderous international conspiracy centred on the Chimneys estate provides the backdrop for a thrilling new comic strip adaptation.

Little does Anthony Cade suspect that a simple errand on behalf of a friend will make him the centrepiece of a murderous international conspiracy. Someone will stop at nothing to prevent the monarchy being restored in faraway Herzoslovakia.

The combined forces of Scotland Yard and the French Surete can do no better than go in circles – until the final murder at Chimneys, the great country estate that yields up an amazing secret…

Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie’s books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters.

Review:

‘One of the best of Agatha Christie’s early thrillers.’ Charles Osborne

‘A thick fog of mystery, cross purposes, and romance, which leads up to a most unexpected and highly satisfactory ending.’ Times Literary Supplement

‘Here’s another capital detective story by Miss Christie, which will keep the reader guessing until the very end, not only as to the identity of the arch villain – the murderer – but also that of the hero, Anthony Cade.’ Literary Review

From the Back Cover:

Little did Anthony Cade suspect that a simple errand on behalf of a friend would make him the centrepiece of a murderous international conspiracy. Someone would stop at nothing to prevent the monarchy being restored in faraway Herzoslovakia.

The combined forces of Scotland Yard and the French Sûreté can do no better than go in circles – until the final murder at Chimneys, the great country estate that yields up an amazing secret.

A FASCINATING TRAIL OF CLUES THAT LEADS HALF-WAY AROUND THE WORLD

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 80 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 a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.
