A Locked Door...Behind Locked Doors...
on 14 July 2017
A classic locked door mystery in all its gory glory. It's Christmas Eve, a dastardly murder takes place at a large mansion house in the village in which M. Poirot is staying with a friend. He offers to assist. The setting is bizarre, the family dysfunctional, the victim - the patriarch of the family. The murder, behind a locked door within the, generally, locked doors of the big house. The murder is a particularly gruesome one. To the discerning M. Poirot, it is clear that this family are not grieving. In fact, they are all suspects and all suspect each other. Full of atmosphere and tension, this will keep you reading. The denouement, when it arrives, is quite ingenious in its detail. A fabulous read. Recommended.
