This classic by Agatha Christie takes a group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm and makes one of them a murderer. Suspects include a newly married couple and boarding house manger, whose suspicions nearly wreck a perfect marriage; a spinster with a curious background; an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef; a retired Army major—a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift; and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. In comes comes a skiing policeman. He arrives, the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go. To get to the the murderer’s pattern, the officer probes the background of everyone present, rattling a lot of skeletons.
