To My Nephew
(from HarperCollins "The Agatha Christie Collection" cover)
Little did Anthony Cade suspect that a simple errand on behalf of a friend would make him the centrepiece of a murderous international conspiracy. Someone would stop at nothing to prevent the monarchy being restored in faraway Herzoslovakia.
The combined forces of Scotland Yard and the French Surete can do no better than go in circles - until the final murser at Chimneys, the great country estate that yields up an amazing secret.
