Luke Fitzwilliam does not believe Miss Pinkerton’s wild allegation that a multiple murderer is at work in the quiet English village of Wychwood and that her local doctor is next in line. But within hours, Miss Pinkerton has been killed in a hit-and-run car accident. Mere coincidence? Luke is inclined to think so—until he reads in the Times of the unexpected demise of Wychwood’s Dr. Humbleby.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Suspense, mystery, romance, and an agreeable touch of the macabre.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “One of Agatha Christie’s best mystery novels, a story fascinating in its plot, clever and lively in its characters, and brilliant in its technique.”

    New York Times

  • “The story’s interest is unflagging, and the end brings excitement as well as surprise.

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Archetypal Mayhem Parva story, with all the best ingredients: Cranford-style village with ‘about six women to every man’; doctors, lawyers, retired colonels, and antique dealers; suspicions of black magic; and, as optional extra ingredient, a memorably awful press lord. And of course a generous allowance of sharp old spinsters. Shorter than most on detection, perhaps because the detection is, until the end, basically amateur. One of the classics.”

    Robert Barnard, English crime writer and critic

  • “Agatha Christie was a revolutionary writer; one of the first to make the detective story accessible, with clean, easy prose.”

    Kate Mosse, New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Pat | 1/9/2011

    " Nice twist at the end. Another not-so-believable romance with the main character. Not a Miss Marple or a Poirot, but a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 1/1/2011

    " Slightly disappointing read and certainly not as riveting as other works of Christie. Didn't hold my attention until the last 40 pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sil | 12/10/2010

    " Well written and entertaining, but too predictable for my taste. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 10/25/2010

    " Originally published in the 30's, this mystery is showing it's age a bit. The plot is slow to develop, and the relationships among characters are very far-fetched and superficial. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 10/12/2010

    " My first Christie novel. I enjoyed it as an introduction to her work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 8/26/2010

    " I wanted to try a mystery novel. I wasn't that impressed with this book, but I won't turn back on this genre just yet. "
