    Iris Carr is tired and exhausted. Travelling by train from Switzerland to England she is surrounded by alien languages and situations which she finds difficult to comprehend. She is relieved therefore when talkative old English governess Miss Froy becomes her impromptu travelling companion. But when Iris wakes from a short sleep Miss Froy has vanished - and none of the passengers will acknowledge her existence. Is Iris mad? Or is there some more sinister reason for the woman's vanishing?

    Questa scrittrice britannica raggiunse la popolarità negli anni '30 e '40 come scrittrice di romanzi gialli. L'ambientazione di questo, in una casa isolata della campagna inglese, riporta al gusto dei classici thriller psicologici dell'epoca, di cui la Christie fu l'esponente più famosa. In questo volume, il cui secondo titolo era "Qualcuno deve vegliare", la suspence cresce di pagina in pagina, e nel corso del romanzo vengono seminati indizi per permettere al lettore di formare le proprie ipotesi, senza però che questo compito gli sia facile.
