About the Book

Gathered at the home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell are various guests amongst whom is Dr John Cristow, his mistress Veronica, his ex-mistress and his wife. Veronica ardently desires to marry Cristow but he refuses to divorce, and Veronica unwisely declares that if she can't have him no-one else will. Within five minutes he is dead. Nearly everyone had a motive and opportunity to murder Cristow, but who actually committed the deed has to be discovered by Inspector Colquhoun and Sergeant Penny.
[In my edition, it's Hercule Poirot who has to carefully sift through all the misleading clues to reveal the truth - and the killer.]
