Agatha Christie's "The Hollow"

Agatha Christie’s The Hollow is a brilliant murder mystery set in a classic English country house in 1936.  A weekend gathering at The Hollow, Sir Henry Angkatell’s place just outside of London, goes deathly awry.

While guests unpack, dress for dinner and partake in pre-dinner cocktails, the good-looking Dr. John Cristow finds himself surrounded by an old flame, his wife and his current mistress, all of whom fan their smouldering desires toward him.  The festive weekend comes to a screeching halt when a guest is suddenly murdered. Everyone has opportunities and motives. It is the charming Inspector Colquhoun and his down-to-earth assistant Sergeant Penny who must try to follow Christie’s well-crafted twists and turns to unmask the killer.
