Dame Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was a British crime writer best known for her detective novels and short stories. According to Guinness World Records, she is the best-selling novelist of all time, her novels having sold over four billion copies and having been translated into more than one hundred languages. The Agatha Award for best mystery and crime writers was named in her honor.
Dame Agatha's creaky stage mystery is here recycled as a novella by the mere expedient of expanding her stage directions into narrative. Beautiful Clarissa, who dreams of finding a corpse in her living room, one day actually finds one. Hugh Fraser's best efforts fail to make this anything but dreary going.
