"Little did Anthony Cade suspect that an errand for a friend would place him at the center of a deadly conspiracy. Drawn into a web of intrigue, he begins to realize that the simple favor has landed him in serious danger. As events unfold, the combined forces of Scotland Yard and the French Sûreté gradually converge on Chimneys, the great country estate that hides an amazing secret. Why were Count Stylptitch's memoirs so important? And what was King Victor really after? Murder, blackmail, stolen letters and a fabulous missing jewel -- all threads lead to Chimneys, one of England's historic country house estates, and a startling denouement"--Page 4 of cover.

Another great mystery. This one is more light-hearted. Often reads more like a play. The ending surprised me when I thought I'd figured it out. Lots of details to follow. A quick read and worth the time.

Excellent Agatha Christie. Features Superintendent Battle as the crime solver.

I found this a bit hard to follow. So many characters in it. It had a good surprising ending though.

Re Superindent Battles

Either that man's sincere or he's the best bluffer I've ever seen. And if the former, God help Prince Michael's murderer when that human blood hound gets hold of him.
