A dying man’s last words provide the spark for this classic Agatha Christie mystery, now available as a Harper Paperback.
While playing an erratic round of golf, Bobby Jones slices his ball over the edge of a cliff. His ball is lost, but on the rocks below he finds the crumpled body of a dying man. The man opens his eyes and with his last breath says, “Why didn’t they ask Evans?”
Haunting by those words, Bobby and his vivacious companion, Frankie, set out to solve a mystery that will bring them into mortal danger....
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 30 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
“Agatha Christie had one of the most creative minds in mystery fiction. She managed to use up almost all the plots before most of us were born.” - Nevada Barr, New York Times bestselling author of the Anna Pigeon mysteries
“A story that tickles and tantalizes but never exhausts the reader’s patience or ingenuity.” - Times Literary Supplement (London)
