Product description

Hercule Poirot is determined to solve an old husband and wife double murder that is still an open verdict...Hercule Poirot stood on the cliff-top. For here, many years earlier, there had been a tragic accident - the broken body of a woman was discovered on the rocks at the foot of the cliff. This was followed by the grisly discovery of two more bodies - a husband and wife - shot dead. But who had killed whom? Was it a suicide pact? A crime of passion? Or cold-blooded murder? Poirot delves back into a crime committed 15 years earlier and discovers that, when there is a distinct lack of physical evidence, it's just as well that 'old sins leave long shadows'...

Author information

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 100 foreign countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 20 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

Review quote

'Splendid... she tells us all we want to know and nothing that is irrelevant.' The Times 'The acknowledged queen of detective fiction.' The Observer

Editorial reviews

An elderly lady writer of detective stories, Mrs. Oliver, with a marvelously directionless and unexpected turn of mind, and the presence, Hercule Poirot, collaborate independently to find out why many years ago the mother and father of Mrs. Oliver's goddaughter ended their lives in a suicide-murder or a double suicide. It is not the most substantial case Hercule has had to contend with but one reads it with predisposed pleasure and certainly this audience will fred it ever so nice - ever and ever so nice.
