"So for God's sake don't say anything to the inspector."
A respectable household is shocked when a strange police inspector visits them shortly after dinner... and proceeds to unravel their prejudices and lies. Through this almost surreal murder-mystery, Priestley interweaves social comment with a gripping story that twists and turns every few pages.
True to the original vision of the author and featuring beautiful engaging artwork, the book features the entire play, unabridged (in the original British English), as well as an illustrated Character List (Dramatis Personae), 132 pages of story artwork, and fascinating support material that details the life and work of J.B. Priestley - all beautifully presented in color.
An alternative text edition with simplified US dialogue is also available enabling differentiation in the classroom.

Read an Excerpt
I’m sorry, Sheila. But it was all over and done with, last summer. I hadn’t set eyes on the girl for at least six months. I don’t come into this suicide business.
I thought I didn’t, half an hour ago.
You don’t. Neither of us does. So for God’s sake don’t say anything to the inspector.
About you and this girl?
Yes. We can keep it from him.
Ha ha ha! Why you fool he knows.
Of course he knows. And I hate to think how much he knows that we don’t know yet.
