Philomel Cottage | [Agatha Christie]

Philomel Cottage

The recently married Alix Martin is obsessed with a recurring dream of her new husband's murder. Each time she can see the murderer clearly, and it's the mild-mannered man she had previously been engaged to, taking his revenge. But, what's worse is that at the end of the dream she thanks the murderer. Perplexed, Alix tries to calm herself by spending time in the garden of her picturesque cottage. But her gardener confuses her further by wishing her well on her trip to London - a trip which Alix knows nothing about. Now Alix is scared: Is the gardener imagining things, or is she?

    Story
    "Tense, suspenseful and fast-moving"

    All the enjoyable aspects of an Agatha Christie story, told in a short story form without
    sacrificing any of the tension - I think you'll like it! Hugh Fraser is an outstanding narrator. The stories would not be the same without his genius.
