Lady Tresselian invites several guests to stay at her seaside house at Gull's Point. Against her better judgment she has allowed her late husband's ward, handsome tennis ace Neville Strange, and his wife Kay to come at the same time as Neville's ex-wife Audrey. Other guests include Mary, Lady Tresselian's companion; Ted, Kay's ever-present friend; Thomas, a family friend who has just returned from spending the war in Africa and Lady Tresselian's old friend Lord Justice Treves.

When death visits Gull's Point the house party is thrown into turmoil. It is left to Scotland Yard's Detective Inspector Leach and Mr MacWhirter, an ex-detective who is also house guest, to solve the case.

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of a classic Agatha Christie mystery, starring Philip Fox as Detective Inspector Leach with Hugh Bonneville and Marcia Warren.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/18/2014

    " It was fun to reread this book. Her books are so fun!! I wish they were longer. I am stuck in a airport hotel with only one more book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Saavedra29 | 2/17/2014

    " This is an amazing book! Until now i have read at least 35 of her books (the most famous) and this book is far my favorite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ira | 2/13/2014

    " Salah satu dari sedikit buku Agatha yang tokohnya Inspektur Battle.. biasanya dia cuman jadi pelengkap Poirot doang :D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamespc | 2/1/2014

    " Absolutely wonderful work by the Mistress of Crime, a post-modern book that predates post-modernism, a detective story that calls attention to the fact that it is a detective story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MK | 1/31/2014

    " I prefer the TV version starring Miss Marple. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Delanie Washburn | 1/24/2014

    " This was not my favorite Agatha Christie book. It starts in reverse order, a long lead of about a lot of different characters before the murder happens. It was interesting as all her books have been to me so far. I wouldn't reread it myself, but I do sort of love that her characters talk to each other so realistically and that was in full force here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 1/19/2014

    " There's no one better than Agatha Christie. She's at the top of her form in this one! Such a treat to find a book by Christie that I haven't read yet.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucky | 1/13/2014

    " my all time favorite Christie novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Spanishliz | 1/8/2014

    " Read again in December 2011 and enjoyed it again, having forgotten all the details. Twenty-five years will do that, I guess. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shankhadeep | 1/7/2014

    " Cracker of a plot ... Ingenious planning of the perfect murder ... Typical Christie "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 12/19/2013

    " Great fun summer read book. Would've given it a 5 if not for the last few lines. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zee1 | 5/27/2013

    " Rereading Agatha Christie's is my favorite thing in the world. No one does it like she did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 3/17/2013

    " Had me guessing right to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aditi | 2/21/2013

    " Its a good book- one of the the best non Poirot mysteries I have read. My only gripe is that the final plot device or twist in the book is the same as that used in one of her most famous books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 8/11/2012

    " Wonderful mystery--keeps one guessing and is pretty creepy. Hints of lunacy, but it makes sense in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Idelette | 6/29/2012

    " Very interesting perspective. The mystery works backwords! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip | 6/1/2012

    " Another Christie re-read - I first read this one in 1976; it was first published in 1944, and I'm reading "The Greenway Edition" published in 1974. I don't remember much about it at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 10/22/2011

    " Books: 4 // Chapters: ? // Pages: 178 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 10/19/2011

    " Oh my goodness! Another completely twisted mystery. I had inklings, but still would never have ever figured this out. One of her most complex and riveting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fredrick Danysh | 9/6/2011

    " A house party at Gull's Point reveaals the connection between an attempted suicide, a false accusation of theft against a schoolgirl, and the romantic life of a tennis star. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gemma | 9/2/2011

    " As always, I didn't see that one coming! Agatha Christie always manages to fool me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 7/13/2011

    " Best use of a backhand as a plot device EVER. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanna | 6/27/2011

    " Ah, Agatha Christie. Even when I've read your books before, I still can't remember whodunit. Of course, I also can't read too many of your books in a row or they all start to seem remarkably similar (who knew there were so many unlikable, eminently murderable people in the world?). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni | 6/23/2011

    " Interesting. Agatha Christie is always a winner. "

    " I enjoyed this mystery. Christie does a great job of throwing in lots of red herrings, leading the reader to believe he or she has figured things out. "
