She is truly the one and only Queen of Crime...<P>In a vast Victorian mansion, the Abernethie family has gathered for the reading of a will. While the master of Enderby Hall, "taken very suddenly", has generously provided for his heirs, his sister Cora has been left with something more: the dreadful suspicion that the kindly patriarch met with foul play. But before Cora has the chance to cry murder! she's banished from the family tree — with eight blows of a hatchet. And detective Hercule Poirot suspects that she won't be the last to go...
Christie at her plot twisting best.
