Is it possible to commit the perfect murder? Victor Smiley and his wife Joan have been married for nearly 2 decades, but each barely recognises the person they wake up next to every morning. Victor is so fed up with his job at the local factory – as well as distracted by his visits to his favourite prostitute, Kamila – that he hardly notices his wife’s constant ridicule. Joan has resigned herself to the fact that Victor will never notice her new haircut or outfit. But unbeknownst to Victor, Joan is taking her sweet revenge: spending large amounts of money on his credit card, kitting herself out in a sexy new wardrobe to impress her secret lover, Don. But, as the bills mount, Victor loses his job. Soon he realises that the only way he can achieve his dream of setting up home with Kamila is to get Joan out of the picture, once and for all. But Victor is about to get a nasty surprise, for he’s not the only one with murder on his mind.....

Clarissa, the wife of a Foreign Office diplomat, is given to daydreaming. ‘Supposing I were to come down one morning and find a dead body in the library, what should I do?’ she muses. Clarissa has her chance to find out when she discovers a body in the drawing-room.
Desperate to dispose of the body before her husband arrives with an important politician, she enlists the help of her guests. Hilarity ensues when they are interrupted by the arrival of wry detective, Inspector Lord.
Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour. There is tension and laughter in equal parts in an intricate plot of murder, invisible ink, hidden doorways and secret drawers.
