Publisher's Summary

According to the courts, Jacko Argyle bludgeoned his mother to death with a poker. The sentence was life imprisonment. But when Dr. Arthur Calgary arrives with the proof that confirms Jacko's innocence, it is too late - Jacko died behind bars followinga bout of pneumonia. Worse still, the doctor's revelations reopen old wounds in the family, increasing the likelihood that the real murderer will strike again.

Not the best!

I love love love Agatha Christie books especially when Hugh Fraser is the narrator.
This one was somewhat disappointing though I really feel like there were too many voices that frankly kind of got mixed up!
Sometimes I thought he was doing a man’s voice when really he was doing one of the women’s voices and the storyline just didn’t flow very well.

The ending was definitely a let down and I thought it was thrown together -not one of her best.
