A new "signature edition" of Agatha Christie's thriller, the first to feature Superintendent Battle and "Bundle" Brent.
Little did Anthony Cade suspect that a simple errand on behalf of a friend would make him the centrepiece of a murderous international conspiracy. Someone would stop at nothing to prevent the monarchy being restored in faraway Herzoslovakia.
The combined forces of Scotland Yard and the French Surete can do no better than go in circles - until the final murder at Chimneys, the great country estate that yields up an amazing secret . . .
A rollercoaster ride
This is an excellent Agatha Christie mystery, and without Hercule Poirot! There are spies, revolutionaries, lost royals and people with unpronouncable names and a biography that promises to spill all the dirt. What else could you want? Well, there's romance, a few bodies and solid English policeman. Enjoy!
