Publisher's Summary

The Leonides are one big happy family living in a sprawling, ramshackle mansion. That is until the head of the household, Aristide, is murdered with a fatal barbiturate injection.
Suspicion naturally falls on the old man's young widow, 50 years his junior. But the murderer has reckoned without the tenacity of Charles Hayward, fiancé of the late millionaire's granddaughter.

Surprise ending

This book kept me guessing and in the end I was totally surprised by who was guilty. Typical intriguing and memorable characters associated with Christie. The reader is extraordinarily talented giving different voices to each character so they come alive.

Excellent for anyone interested in psychology

Agatha Christie’s genius has always lain in her singular understanding of human nature, and this is a prime example. This book is less about situational facts and more about emotions and motives. I suspected quite literally everyone, so I can’t say it was a SURPRISE at the end—but up until the moment of the reveal, it really could’ve been anyone. I really liked the choice of Charles Hayward as a narrator! Hugh Fraser is, as always, second to none.
