Publisher's Summary

Graham and Joan Bendix have apparently succeeded in making that eighth wonder of the modern world, a happy marriage. And into the middle of it there drops, like a clap of thunder, a box of chocolates.
Joan Bendix is killed by a poisoned box of liqueur chocolates that cannot have been intended for her to eat. The police investigation rapidly reaches a dead end. Chief Inspector Moresby calls on Roger Sheringham and his Crimes Circle - six amateur but intrepid detectives - to consider the case.
The evidence is laid before the Circle, and the members take it in turn to offer a solution. Each is more convincing than the last, slowly filling in the pieces of the puzzle until the dazzling conclusion.

For historians of detective fiction

Very much a 'cozy' mystery, where armchair detectives work through the mysterious case of a death by poisoned chocolates. It's apparently somewhat famous in the overall history of detective fiction, as it presents more than one completely plausible and very tidy ending to the story.

I wasn't blown away but it was an enjoyable way to spend a day. I think I listened to the entire thing in two sessions. It might have only been one.
