A new full-length novel adapted by Charles Osborne from Agatha Christie's acclaimed play, and beautifully re-packaged with stunning new cover illustrations. When a stranger runs his car into a ditch in dense fog near the South Wales coast, and makes his way to an isolated house, he discovers a woman standing over the dead body of her wheelchair-bound husband, a gun in her hand. She readily admits to murder, and the unexpected guest offers to help her concoct a cover story. But is it possible Laura Warwick did not commit the crime after all? If so, who is she shielding? As the gallant unexpected guest, Michael Starkwedder, looks for other enemies of the dead man he certainly isn't disappointed by a lack of possible suspects - all with very potent motives...

About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, the most popular detective since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime and her works have sold over two billion copies - 80 crime books, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

From AudioFile:

This adaptation from the stage play by Christie biographer Charles Osborne gives Agatha Christie fans a new arena in which to hear her masterful mysteries. A traveler's car breaks down in the Scottish countryside, and, while seeking assistance, he stumbles upon a murder in a nearby home. And as is typical with Agatha Christie yarns, all is not as it seems. Lively and well-suited to the humorous undertones in Christie's work is Alexandra Thomas. Her narrative pace adeptly twists with each turn of plot. This audiobook is so faithful to Christie's writing style that fans may not even notice it's an adaptation. R.A.P.
