Beautiful Clarissa, who dreams of finding a corpse in her living room, one day actually finds one. This is an adaptation of one of Christie's plays.

The Spider's Web by Agatha Christie is another example of her clever presentation of

plot and character building that has the reader so confused as to the ending that he

just gives up and enjoys the story. The heroine and her family truly creates a spider's

web of deceit, greed and murder. Full of "red herrings", as usual.

Magnificently written with no wondering if the story will get off the ground. Agatha's

books always take-off smoothly and keep the destination confidently in sight.

This is a prose version of the play. A diplomat is to bring an ambassador home incognito. So when a scumbag is whacked in the house, everyone tries to cover up the murder. Not too effectively though. Amid the police investigation, the participants all seem to be using an alias. this is one of Auntie's better efforts, particularly in the denouement.

Clarissa, the young wife of a foreign office diplomat, delights in tweaking the sensibilities of her more serious friends by playing a game she calls "supposing"--imagining a difficult situation and finding out how people would respond. But Clarissa's lighthearted games becomes deadly serious when she discovers the body of an unknown person in her own drawing room. If that weren't bad enough, her husband is on the way home with an important foreign politician. Clarissa decides to dispose of the body and persuades her three houseguests to help. But before she can get the corpse off the premises, a policeman knocks at her front door. Now Clarissa must keep the body hidden, convince the skeptical police inspector that there has been no murder, and, in the meantime, find out who has been murdered, why, and what the body is doing in her house...
