From the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie, comes a tale of money, manipulation and murder. Self-made multi-millionaire George Barton (Kenneth Cranham) is a man of influence and power - but even he doesn't have the power to save his beautiful young wife when she collapses, poisoned, at a dinner party. Who amongst his friends and those who 'love' him most might have done such a deed? And what was the motive? The fact that one of the guests is a leading government minister who was having an affair with the victim leads to concern at the highest levels - and the highest levels call on Colonel Geoffrey Reece (Oliver Ford Davies) and Dr. Catherine Kendall (Pauline Collins) to step in and sort it all out. But what they discover, buried in the world of championship footballers, fitness fanatics, loose-living gamblers, friends and family, will lead to even more murderous acts before the killer is finally caught out.
This is a very likeable who dunnit along traditional lines, just the thing for a quiet evening at home, despite the fact that the character played by Pauline Collins (she and I go back to The Happy Apple) doesn't appear in Christie's original at all.
