A dark offering from the Queen of Crime. This Agatha Christie
Signature Edition represents the world-famous author's most
successful foray into the dark world of murder and black magic. To
understand the strange goings on at The Pale Horse Inn, Mark
Easterbrook knew he had to begin at the beginning. But where
exactly was the beginning? Was it the savage blow to the back of
Father Gorman's head? Or was it when the priest's assailant
searched him so roughly he tore the clergyman's cassock? Or could
it have been the priest's visit, just minutes before, to a woman on
her death bed? Or was there a deeper significance to the violent
squabble which Mark Easterbrook had himself witnessed earlier?
Wherever the beginning lies, Mark and his sidekick, Ginger
Corrigan, may soon have cause to wish they'd never found it...
