Clarissa, the wife of a Foreign Office diplomat, is prone to daydreaming. ‘Supposing I were to come down one morning and find a dead body in the library, what should I do?’ she muses. Clarissa has her chance to find out when she discovers a body in the drawing room of her house in Kent.

Agatha Christie’s comedy thriller in three acts delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour in an intricate plot of murder, police, drugs, hidden doorways and secret drawers.
