About This Item

New York, NY: Pocket Books. Very Good. 1985. Mass Market Paperback. 0671558226 . Spine is a bit creased, covers show a little shelf wear.

"Why was the body discovered in the sitting room of the elderly and eminently respectable Miss Millicent Petmarsh? Why were four strange clocks set at 4:13 precisely? Indeed, why were the clocks there at all?
The sudden appearance of an unidentified corpse at No. 19 Wilbraham Crescent has the police utterly baffled. But pity the villain who matches wits with the dapper and relentless Belgian detective -- Hercule Poirot."; Hercule Poirot; 5¾" - 6¾" Tall .

Synopsis

E-book exclusive extras:1) Christie biographer Charles Osborne's essay on The Clocks;2) "The Poirots": the complete guide to all the cases of the great Belgian detective.Sheila Webb, typist-for-hire, has arrived at 19 Wilbraham Crescent in the seaside town of Crowdean to accept a new job. What she finds is a well-dressed corpse surrounded by five clocks. Mrs Pebmarsh, the blind owner of No. 19, denies all knowledge of ringing Sheila’s secretarial agency and asking for her by name—yet someone did. Nor does she own that many clocks. And neither woman seems to know the victim. Colin Lamb, a young intelligence specialist working a case of his own at the nearby naval yard, happens to be on the scene at the time of Sheila Webb’s ghastly discovery. Lamb knows of only one man who can properly investigate a crime as bizarre and baffling as what happened inside No. 19 — his friend and mentor, Hercule Poirot.
