Publisher's Summary

A foggy night... a lonely country house... and a woman with a gun in her hand quietly surveying the dead body of her husband. It looked like a straightforward case of murder. Or was it?

As the ghosts of an old wrong begin to emerge from the past, the case begins to look anything but straightforward...

First staged at the Duchess Theatre in London in 1958, this play ran for 604 performances and is as gripping and ingenious as you would expect from the Queen of Crime.

Suspenseful, well acted!

Suspenseful, briskly paced and the perfect length story for a misty walk in the park with my dog.

A new one on me, but now a favorite

A new one on me, but now a favorite. Cleverly plotted with a twist at the end that you never see coming.

Typical Christie!

I heard this in black and white, it had that sort of sound. The only fly in the ointment was the whiny voice of the child, but I suppose that's how they were portrayed when this was dramatised. As I did, you will no doubt have the culprit pinpointed way before the end but that does not detract from the neatness of this pure Christie plot.
