Product description

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'

I love all Agatha Christie stories, particularly the newer ones that I haven't read. This proved no exception, a wonderful plot that kept you guessing right to the end who was the guilty person.

Set in an English village, and complete with the stock cast of suspects, the only surprise is that Hercule Poirot, rather then Miss Marple, arrives to solve this mystery.

In a world where dogs and gardening provide the main topics of conversation, the cast of characters is representative of the local gentry: the solicitor; the doctor; the farmer, the whimsical lady spiritualist - only the Rector is missing. The maids have adenoids, the barmaid is brassy, and the local constabulary show a proper respect for "their betters".
But the old order is breaking down in the aftermath of war. The gentry are feeling the pinch and their former benefactor has died, leaving a wealthy widow. She takes up residence among them, with her darkly mysterious brother. But is she his widow? Was she his wife? And is he really her brother? Suspicion naturally falls on the pair of outsiders - he is not a gentleman and she is certainly no lady, even her name is "bogus".
Foul play is committed with hardly any blood and no nasty gory details. And Hercule Poirot arrives, in a cloud of Gallic mist, to tell us "who done it", despite the red herrings that the author strews across his path.
Hugh Fraser's excellent reading evokes a politically incorrect world which has long vanished, if it ever existed. It is thoroughly archaic and utterly enjoyable.

Absolutely love this story. Superbly read by hugh fraser whose multiple character voice changes leave you in no doubt as to which character is speaking, making it very easy on the ear. One if the best christie stories in my opinion with all the twists and turns you'd expect from this writer.
