Agatha Christie is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime for her 80 ingenious crime books and her plays. Writing anonymously as Mary Westmacott, she also wrote about crimes of the heart, a series of six bittersweet novels with a jagged edge, as compelling and memorable as the best of her work.

'Miss Westmacott writes crisply and is always lucid... much material has been skilfully compressed.' Times Literary Supplement
