Book Description

A classic Agatha Christie short story, available individually for the first time as an ebook.

The rather disgruntled pair is sequestered in the Grand Adlington Hotel having made a pig’s ear out of their latest case. But, whilst sipping mournful cocktails, with Tommy oddly dressed as a Parson, they are gleefully accosted by their old acquaintance Mr. Bulger who has London’s most beautiful stage actress, Gilda Glen, in tow. Feather brained and a little confused, Gilda takes Tommy for a real clergyman and scrawls out a desperate note to meet him away from the hotel. Whilst Tommy and Tuppence mull over the note, in storms a man, an old flame of Gilda’s claiming he wants to ring someone’s neck. When the duo turn up at the meeting place all hell breaks loose after a high pitch scream is heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars The man in the mist 9 Mar. 2012
By sarah
As usual Agatha Christie has a great tale with a twist at the end. I read the short story right through without stopping as I wanted to know who was the murderer. A good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Agatha Christie's light touch 28 Oct. 2013
By John
Verified Purchase
Agatha Christie used different characters for different types of story. Tommy and Tuppence are her frivolous characters. This short story starts with their failure in one case and them tripping over another case by accident which they solve. Personally I prefer Hercules Poirot and Miss Marple whose stories tend to be more 'meaty' but it is refreshing to come across the lighter side

3.0 out of 5 stars just ok 12 Sept. 2013

I am not really a fan of the short story but thought I would try Agatha Christie, the story is fairly simple and even I managed to work out the villain before the end, Ok for a quick read before bedtime!

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Agatha Christe 5 Feb. 2013
If you know her writing you will love this.

If not and you lie a challenge read this as a sample. The answer is clear but you miss it until it is revealed.
Great read. Recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Over too soon 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Engrossing read that came to its conclusion rather suddenly. The language and style are very evocative of the era.
Based on this I would like to read more and longer works.

There is nobody as good as Agatha Christie for writing good stories, where she gets her ideas from? and this short story was just like her novels, has a twist at the end.
