About the book

Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, yet there were five other suspects: Philip Blake (the stockbroker) who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist) who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcee) who had roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess) who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister) who cried wee wee wee all the way home.

It is sixteen years later, but Hercule Poirot just cant get that nursery rhyme out of his mind

About the Author

Agatha Christie

Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie began writing during the First World War and wrote over 100 novels, plays and short story collections. She was still writing to great acclaim until her death, and her books have now sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. Yet Agatha Christie was always a very private person, and though Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple became household names, the Queen of Crime was a complete enigma to all but her closest friends.

  • Book Condition & Notes

    The book comes with a bookplate signed by Agatha Christie - the book itself is only signed by David Suchet.

    A very good first edition, in the original red cloth binding. The colour of the spine has slightly faded, and a previous owner's name is written inside the front cover. Some minor wear to the board edges. In a good unclipped dust jacket, with a chip and tear to the bottom of the spine, a small tear to the top of the front cover, and some wear to the edges.
