THE SITTAFORD MYSTERY

M-U-R-D-E-R. It began as an innocent parlor game intended to while away the hours on a bitter winter night. But the message that appeared before the amateur occultists at the snowbound Sittaford House was spelled out as loud and clear as a scream. Of course, the notion that they had foretold doom was pure bunk. Wasn't it? And the discovery of a corpse was pure coincidence. Wasn't it? If they're to discover the answer to this baffling murder, perhaps they should play again. But a journey into the spirit world could prove terribly dangerous-especially when the killer is lurking in this one.

Author Biography: Agatha Christie is the world's best known mystery writer. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare.

Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 80 novels and short story collections, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap, is the longest-running play in history.

Agatha Christie also wrote under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott. As well, she wrote four non-fiction books including an autobiography and an entertaining account of the many expeditions she shared with her archaeologist husband, Sir Max Mallowan.

Agatha Christie died in 1976.

The novel was published in 1931 as The Sittaford Mystery in London and as Muder at Hazelmoor in America.

    Excellent Read

    This book was so intriguing, I had a very difficult time putting it down, even when I had to go to work! Almost every chapter provides persuasive clues and new suspects who may have been involved with logical motives. The twists and turns in the book kept me jumping from one suspect to another, sure I was right that time, only to be surprised by the real murderer. This is a great read for anyone interested in mystery whodunnits!

    A TIMELESS MYSTERY WELL READ

    True mystery fans may read and reread tales by the doyenne of all mystery writers, Agatha Christie. With the advent of audio books we can now listen and relisten to our favorites. Surely that will be case with 'The Sittaford Mystery' superbly read by acclaimed British actor Nathaniel Parker. In this, the first novel in which Ms. Christie makes use of the supernatural in her plotting, a seance is being held. The six participants enjoy this pastime, they view it as a lark - that is until a spirit spells out m-u-r-d-e-r. The deceased is supposedly Captain Trevelyan. Not only supposedly, but truly as in only a few hours the Captain is found dead. It was a brutal murder; death was caused by a vicious blow to the head. Jim, Emily Trefusis's fiancé is the prime suspect. It is up to her to clear his name. For help she turns to a retired Inspector, and a very nosy newsman. Is this trio able to unearth the truth?

    One of her best

    For those who don't know some of her earlier works - this is a great read. She brings you back to a different era and it is always enjoyable. I have read these books so many times and always spot something new in them with each re-read.

    The Sittaford Mystery (also published as The Murder at Hazelmoor)

    Once again Dame Agatha has spun a mysterious web for the reader to sort out. Almost effortlessly we are drawn into the quiet lives of the secluded English village folks. She is an expert at making the reader feel welcome and invisible at the same time. It is almost as if one is watching a movie. The characters are easily and naturally introduced and the stage set - then (surprise)! So, the murder has occurred and the hunt begins for the killer. But, who will it be? Yes, the "games a-foot" and what a game. If anyone knows how to play this game, it's Dame Agatha Christie. Her faithful fans and newbies alike will thoroughly enjoy The Sittaford Mystery, I know I did!
