The Grande Dame of suspense weaves a clever mystery that will keep you guessing till the very end. The guests at Monkswell Manor are snowed in with a murderer in their midst. Whodunit? Sergeant Trotter is determined to find out, and his investigation turns up more shocking secrets than anyone could haveanticipated. Full of intricate plot twists and shuddering suspense, it is no wonder The Mousetrap has become the world’s longest-running stage production.

A group of strangers is stranded in a boarding house during a snowstorm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others are a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and an old woman who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a police officer, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, than someone is killed. Two down and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer's pattern, the police officer probes the background of everyone present, and rattles many skeletons. Another famous Agatha Christie switch finish! Chalk up another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time.
