This is a homage to Agatha Christie, a celebration of all that is good about vintage crime and a fiendishly difficult mystery. In his own inimitable style, Horowitz brings a twist to the crime classics of the 1930s with a story set in a little village, where all is not as it seems. Atticus Pund, half-German, half-Turkish, is an Anglophile - indeed, his love of the English makes it difficult to believe that any of them would want to commit murder. But a murder has been committed and it is up to Atticus to solve it. With a cast of characters that will delight fans of Agatha Christie, this is a classic criime novel with more than one twist, from international bestseller, Anthony Horowitz.
