“Will keep the reader guessing until the very end.” (Literary Review)

Little did Anthony Cade suspect that an errand for a friend would place him at the center of a deadly conspiracy. Drawn into a web of intrigue, he begins to realize that the simple favor has placed him in serious danger.
As events unfold, the combined forces of Scotland Yard and the French Sûreté gradually converge on Chimneys, the great country estate that hides an amazing secret. . . .

My wife and I watched the "new" Miss Marple series that was "based on" this book -- very loosely based on, I should say, as Miss Marple is not even mentioned in the book (in general, the new Miss Marple series takes a lot of liberties with the stories). Anyway, I couldn't remember how the "real" story went, so I purchased this one.
This is the first book with Superintendent Battle.
Many of the same characters return in "The Seven Dials Mystery", but we meet them here for the first time.
I did have some suspicion as to what was going on, but I wasn't 100% certain - her settling everything up always has surprises for me.
The books in the "Superintendent Battle" series are:
1. The Secret of Chimneys (Agatha Christie Mysteries Collection)
2. The Seven Dials Mystery (Agatha Christie Mysteries Collection)
3. Cards on the Table: Hercule Poirot Investigates (Hercule Poirot Mysteries)
4. Murder Is Easy
5. Towards Zero
This story is an amazing mystery, which will leave you gasping for breath by the time the end comes around! Fabulous! Mr. Fraser's rendition adds to the whole effect and leaves you feeling like you've just watched a movie! Really a grand work! For any Christie fans, this is a must!
