The coroner's verdict: suicide, after beautiful heiress Rosemary Barton dies from drinking a cyanide-laced glass of champagne at her own birthday party. Her husband George doesn't believe it, based on two anonymous letters that suggest murder. But who has a motive? Rosemary's lover or the lover's spurned wife, her penniless sister, or even George or his secretary? One year after her death, six gather for dinner in remembrance. The plan is to trap the killer, but instead, death strikes again!

Same as "Sparkling Cyanide," but still a good read even when you know who-dun-it.

A very ingenious plot that starts a bit too slowly and develops into lots of surprises. Highly recommend it for fans of Christie or mystery novels.

Good short story from Agatha Christie with Colonel Race as the main man.

I am an Christie fan. This book is a one off, not Hercule or Miss Marple, but fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast read

It would be splendid!
Dramatic!
A repetition of the crime.
Well, not quite a repetition . . .
His mind went back.

Rosemary, sprawled forward on that table - dead. . .
