A man in search of road-side assistance after getting lost in the fog happens upon a woman who has apparently just shot her wheelchair-bound husband in the head moments before. Instead of jumping to the phone to call the police, the man decides to help the beautiful lady in distress cover up her crime. Or IS it her crime? Delight, as I did, in Agatha Christie's play, as realized in novel form by Charles Osborne. Mr. Osborne's prose does not match that of Christie, but his smoothing out of the stage directions is artfully done and the mystery can unfold for the armchair reader on a stage in the mind's eye.

Purely classic example of deception of the mind. Even knowing that you could never guess what is going to happen even on the next page. It starts as an open shut case, but no one knows the real truth. Then, the solution begins to fog up. And what was so obvious...isn't as it appears. One thing leads to another, and an unexpected guest becomes apart of the unfolding plot. And right when he wants to leave, the truth comes out. And the simple and obvious, becomes genius and incredible...

I've recently found my love for Agatha Christie novels, and this is on the top of the list of my favorite books. I got so into it that I read it in one day, I'd recommend it to anyone.

This book is perfect if you are a fan of mystery books. The book is great due to the way the author write s the text. It just keeps you guessing throughout the book. You won't be able to put the book down because the evidence points to one person then the next then the next. I thought this was going to be one of those books were i was going to get bored while reading, but i was wrong. This book kept me wanting to read more because of the suspense. This is one of the best books I have ever read and I really recommend trying to read it.

This book was fantastic. You don't really guess what is going to happen because you believe your own ending. Actually, it ends way different then you would think.

I read this book for a book report and it was a overall good book. It was full of excitement and mystery. This book was a great book. This book was about a murder of an old man. The problems were that they could not find the murderer. If you like mysteries then you should read this book. I recommend this book to everyone.

I, personally, do not like most of Agatha Christie's work, but I loved this novel. It is very twisted and keeps you guessing who the killer is until the final chapter. The story is great and won't disappoint you.
