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.See all Product Description

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.
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

A good read, one I'd not read before. Can pick out that it was a play but converted well to book format.Published 6 months ago by sophie's choice
Thoroughly enjoyed it. A bit wary as someone else turning play to novel but really well done.Published 14 months ago by Gus
An okay read. Short and to be read in one or two sittings. It is easier to imagine it as a tv film than as a novel. Not at all as good as other Agatha Christie novels.Published 16 months ago by Kindle Customer
