Review by

Another sutble pastiche of an Agatha Christie novel. Ten years after they first met a chance encounter at the Ritz brings Chief Inspector Trubshaw and Evadne Mount together again and they are soon drawn into a murder investigation after an actress dies on a film set before their eyes. Set in just after WWII the book is littered with historical references and a a sly send up of Hitchcock. Superb.
