The book comes with a bookplate signed by Agatha Christie - the book itself is NOT signed.
A very good first edition, in the original red cloth binding. The colour of the spine has slightly faded, and a previous owner's name is written inside the front cover. Some minor wear to the board edges. In a good unclipped dust jacket, with a chip and tear to the bottom of the spine, a small tear to the top of the front cover, and some wear to the edges.
Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, yet there were five other suspects: Philip Blake (the stockbroker) who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist) who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcee) who had roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess) who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister) who cried ‘wee wee wee’ all the way home.
It is sixteen years later, but Hercule Poirot just can’t get that nursery rhyme out of his mind…
