From the Back Cover

Clarissa, the wife of a Foreign Office diplomat, is given to daydreaming. 'Supposing I were to come down one morning and find a dead body in the library, what should I do?' she muses.

Clarissa has her chance to find out when she discovers a body in her drawing-room. Desperate to dispose of it before her husband come home with an important foreign politician, Clarissa persuades her three house guests to become accessories and accomplices. As the search begins for the murderer in their midst, the house party is interrupted by the arrival of a police inspector, who needs convincing that there has been no murder at all…

Following his acclaimed 'Black Coffee' and 'The Unexpected Guest' play novelisations, Charles Osborne brings another of Agatha Christie's elusive mysteries to a new legion of fans.

Format: Paperback
What a joy to read a 'new' Agatha Christie book!This book was wrtten by Christie as a play and has been adapted to novel form by Charles Osborne, but you wouldn't know this if you hadn't been told. It's in the usual format, a body, mysterious circumstances, red herring's, a list of suspects and a policeman to sort it out.
The setting is a country house, the victim was a nasty sort. I won't say much more because I don't want to spoil it for you.
Spider's web is not a complicated plot, probably due to the fact that it has been adapted from the stage. However it is still immensely enjoyable.
I gave it four stars instead of five because I thought it lacked the 'roundness' of a novel. The characters are only seen in one room - as on stage. Nevertheless, a great read, recommended.

An excellent story, though a little too obvious that it was a play transformed into a book. You can almost read the stage directions (Door opens left, Inspector ethers and picks up gloves) all set in, or mainly in, one room. But that apart it is a very good story, and as usual the guilty person is unveiled at the very end. Not classic Christie, but well worth reading anyway.

Spider's Web is another great Agatha Christie audio cassette. An intricate plotline adds to the story, and the revelation of the murderer at the end is very dramatic, and very unexpected. For anyone who enjoys a good Agatha Christie.

great book to add to my Agatha Christie library, there are so many murders to read by the time you have finished them all you can start again and still find something new about the plot that perhaps you missed first time round

I have a problem reading play scripts so feel a great sense of gratitude to Charles Osbourne who has turned this Christie play into a novel.
Although it has a stilted feel to the reading since he has been very faithful to the play's text and uses all the stage directions for description and action it is a fine addition the Christie canon alongside his novelisations of Black Coffee and The Unexpected Guest

I added this to my collection of CD Audio Tapes, another cracking good story from Agatha Christie - I listen to all my CD's while doing two 3,000 piece jigsaw puzzles which I get as a Christman present.

This is one of several novelisations of plays by Charles Osborne and they are a gift for Agatha Christie fans who have read all the other books. The writing style isn't quite like Agatha's, but of course the dialogue is hers and it's near enough to simply accept without thinking about it. Since it's a play all the action takes place in a couple of rooms, which makes the book seem a little claustrophobic and there's no variety of locations and characters to keep it interesting. It's more for fans and completists then, but nevertheless great fun as a whodunnit.

Loved this little story. It's so full of action & twists & turns; you're constantly taken surprise by what happens next &, in true classic Christie style, you're kept guessing right until the end. I would love to go see the play - that would be fantastic.
