“Agatha Christie’s ability to devise intricate
plots, coupled with her understanding of human nature―at its best
and worst―have made her tales timeless.” (Jan Burke,
award-winning author of the Irene Kelly mysteries)
“The acknowledged queen of detective fiction the world over.”
From the Back Cover
Pretty, young Anne came to London looking for adventure. In fact,
adventure comes looking for her—and finds her immediately at Hyde
Park Corner tube station. Anne is present on the platform when a
thin man, reeking of mothballs, loses his balance and is
electrocuted on the rails.
The Scotland Yard verdict is accidental death. But Anne is not
satisfied. After all, who was the man in the brown suit who
examined the body? And why did he race off, leaving a cryptic
message behind: "17-122 Kilmorden Castle"?
