Publisher's Summary

Graham and Joan Bendix have apparently succeeded in making that eighth wonder of the modern world, a happy marriage. And into the middle of it there drops, like a clap of thunder, a box of chocolates.

Joan Bendix is killed by a poisoned box of liqueur chocolates that cannot have been intended for her to eat. The police investigation rapidly reaches a dead end. Chief Inspector Moresby calls on Roger Sheringham and his Crimes Circle - six amateur but intrepid detectives - to consider the case.

The evidence is laid before the Circle, and the members take it in turn to offer a solution. Each is more convincing than the last, slowly filling in the pieces of the puzzle until the dazzling conclusion.

    Story
    "For historians of detective fiction"

    Very much a 'cozy' mystery, where armchair detectives work through the mysterious case of a death by poisoned chocolates. It's apparently somewhat famous in the overall history of detective fiction, as it presents more than one completely plausible and very tidy ending to the story.

    I wasn't blown away but it was an enjoyable way to spend a day. I think I listened to the entire thing in two sessions. It might have only been one.

    Story
    "Simply wonderful!"

    I really really enjoyed this classic 'whodunit' from the golden age of murder mystery writing. It definitely kept me guessing.

    A group of six people from a crime club and attempt to identify the murderer of the eponymous poisoned chocolates case. Each comes up with an ingenious theory, each in turn has their theory quashed by their fellow club members. I had personally come up with theory number four it I was wrong...

    The story can occasionally get a little long winded but the twists and turns will keep you listening. I thoroughly recommend this story.
