Descripción del producto
"Agatha Christie is grade A fun."--Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author
Descripción del producto
Soon to be a limited streaming series starring Anna Chancellor and Bill Nighy
Considered by critics as one of the best of Agatha Christie's later novels, and a personal favorite for Christie herself, Ordeal by Innocence is a psychological thriller involving crimes from both past and present.
According to the courts, Jacko Argyle bludgeoned his mother to death with a poker. The sentence was life imprisonment. But when Dr. Arthur Calgary arrives with the proof that confirms Jacko's innocence, it is too late--Jacko died behind bars following a bout of pneumonia. Worse still, the doctor's revelations reopen old wounds in the family, increasing the likelihood that the real murderer will strike again.

The Plot": Jacko Argyle was an orphan rescued by the matronly Mrs Argyle. Years later she was found murdered after being bludgeoned to death. Jacko had a bad reputation and was quickly arrested for the crime. He died of pneumonia whilst in prison. After several years a man named Dr. Arthur Calgary turns up at the Argyle home. He suffered from amnesia at the time of the murder but now remembers Jacko was a hitchhiker the night of the murder'; Calgary picked him up so Jacko could not be the murderer. That leaves the rest of the Argyle family and friends as suspects
of the dastardly dead. Those suspects are":
Mary Durrant who is the Argyles daughter. Her husband Philip Durrant was a pilot in World War II but is now crippled. He is also an amateur sleuth who seeks to solve the murder case.
Michael Argyle works as a car salesman but dreams of working the oil fields of Persia.
Tina Argyle is of mixed race . She works as a quiet librarian.
Hester Argyle is a rebellious daughter who has appeared on the stage. (all these adult children were adopted by the Argyles when they were children)
Widower Leo Argyle is involved in a romantic relationship with Gwenda Vaught his longtime secretary
Miss Kirsty Lindstrom is the longtime housekeeper for the wealthy Argyles.
The Argyles are a very dysfunctional family! Match your wits with the police and Doctor Arthur Calgary in solving this case. Christie shows more psychological depth and develops her characters more in this book than in many of her works. Recommended!
