Agatha Christie considered The Moving Fingerto be one of her best novels Summary: "A spate of poison pen letters wreaks havoc on an English village.

The book takes its name from verse 51 of Edward Fitzgerald's translation of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, a poem which Agatha Christie greatly admired."
