Publisher's summary

Cash-strapped drifter Anthony Cade agrees to two jobs at the behest of an old friend. He is to deliver an unpublished memoir to a publisher and return a cache of letters to a woman. The simple errands soon plunge Cade into dangerous international intrigue that draws together Scotland Yard, the French Sûreté, and the heir to the Herzoslovakian throne. But it’s at the historic estate of Chimneys in the English countryside that the dark secrets of a treacherous conspiracy erupt in murder.

Clandestine societies, ciphers, hidden passages, body doubles, and questionable detectives are just part of a deviously clever puzzle - part mystery, part treasure hunt - devised by the unparalleled Agatha Christie. First published in 1925, The Secret of Chimneys marked the debut of Superintendent Battle - the stolid investigator who appeared in five classic Christie mysteries.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Secret of Chimneys, this edition of The Secret of Chimneys (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
