Vigyázat! Cselekményleírást tartalmaz.

Lady Angkatell, intrigued by the criminal mind, has invited Hercule Poirot to her estate for a weekend house party. The Belgian detective's arrival at the Hollow is met with an elaborate tableau staged for his amusement: a doctor lies in a puddle of red paint, his timid wife stands over his body with a gun while the other guests look suitably shocked. But this is no charade. The paint is blood and the corpse real!

Agatha Christie: The Hollow

Egyszerre hagyományos Agatha Christie-krimi és valami teljesen szokatlan. Hercule Poirot itt inkább csak mellékszereplő, a gyanúsítottak ellopják a történetet, ami nem is baj, jó volt ez így. A gyilkos kiléte nem olyan meglepő, mint amilyen Christie szán(hat)ta – nekem egyből egy modernebb történet jutott eszembe róla. Lehet, hogy Neil Cross is olvasta ezt a könyvet? Vagy csak nekem van a fejemben túlságosan Alice Morgan…

We are only, as she knows, moderately fond of caramel custard. There would be something very gross, just after the death of a friend, in eating one's favourite pudding. But caramel custard is so easy – slippery if you know what I mean – and then one leaves a little on one's plate.

At six thirteen a.m. on a Friday morning Lucy Angkatell's blue eyes opened upon another day, and as always, she was at once wide awake and began immediately to deal with the problems conjured up by her incredibly active mind.

(első mondat)


You took thoughts, choosing them out of your store, and then, not dwelling on them, you let them slip through the fingers of your mind, never clutching at them, never dwelling on them, no concentration … just letting them drift gently past.

I found him amusing. And he had charm. But I never think one ought to attach too much importance to anybody.
