"Friday evening the genteel inhabitants of Ornum House were all busy. Cousin Gertrude cleaned the chandelier, the great aunts played ombre, the black sheep of the family arrived in the village, his Lordship's nephew and his wife came late for dinner...and one of them murdered poor Mr. Meridith." Can Inspector Sloan find out who and why before the family ghost gets him?

A subtly amusing story - almost a caricature. Very well written though totally unrealistic plot. I'd never read Aird before but am now a fan.

Aird is my favorite behind Christie--classic, fun, and witty. The regular supporting characters are a riot!

A comfortable cosy read, full of amusing characters, and poking a bit of fun at the aristocracy.

"on Sunday the public paid half a crown to view Ornum House's three hundred roooms, its exceptional display of fine china, its authentic Holbein, its dank dungeon complete with suits of armor...and a dead body."
