paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571239474 | ISBN 10: 0571239471

London, 1946: An actress is murdered, not just on camera but in full view of a crowded film set. Only six people had an opportunity to administer the poison yet not one of them had a conceivable motive.
Luckily, Evadne Mount, the irrespressible author of countless bestselling whodunits, is on the case, with the help of her loyal, long-suffering partner Chief Inspector Trubshawe. Together they discover that these same six people did, however, have a motive for committing another, earlier, but still unsolved murder. And yet, on that occasion, not one of the them had the opportunity...

"An arch pastiche of, and venerable homage to, the Christie canon... the author pulls it off with brio."
(Sunday Times)
