A year ago Rosemary dies of cyanide poisoning at a fashionable restaurant. Now George, her widower, wants to stage the party again with the same guests and an empty place for Rosemary. He is advised by an old friend - Colonel Race - not to do it and Race himself refuses to attend the party. George has been prompted to restage it because he has received anonymous letters saying his wife was murdered. Instead of going to the police he wants to frighten the murderer into revealing themselves.
A lot of the book is made up of the back story and what led up to the fatal party a year ago but it makes interesting reading and the reader gets plenty of information on which to form their own judgement of who is the murderer. A little unfortunately the introduction to the e-book edition I read contains an introduction which says who the murderer is so if you read this edition and don't want to know then read the introduction last.
As ever the book is well written and well plotted and the characters are interesting and believable.
