The master of a Victorian mansion dies suddenly – and his sister is convinced it was murder….


When Cora is savagely murdered with a hatchet, the extraordinary remark she made the previous day at her brother Richard’s funeral suddenly takes on a chilling significance.


At the reading of Richard’s will, Cora was clearly heard to say: ‘It’s been hushed up very nicely, hasn’t it…But he was murdered, wasn’t he?’


In desperation, the family solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery.

Book Condition & Notes

A near-fine first edition, in the original binding. A previous owner's name has been written inside the front cover, and there is a small tear to the title page. Otherwise fine. In a very good unclipped dust jacket, with a small tear to the bottom of the front cover, near the spine, and another small tear to the bottom of the back cover. Some minor wear to the corners, and some very small tears to top and bottom of spine.
