Agatha Christie's seasonal mystery thriller in a sumptuous Christmas
hardback Special Edition. 'There is, at Christmas, a spirit of goodwill.
People who do not feel amiable are putting great pressure on themselves to
appear amiable! If you dam the stream of natural behaviour, mon ami, sooner
or later the dam bursts and a cataclysm occurs!' It is Christmas Eve. The
Lee family reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture, followed
by a high-pitched wailing scream. Upstairs, the tyrannical Simeon Lee lies
dead in a pool of blood, his throat slashed. But when Hercule Poirot, who
is staying in the village with a friend for Christmas, offers to assist, he
finds an atmosphere not of mourning but of mutual suspicion. It seems
everyone had their own reason to hate the old man...
