"No outsider could have guessed that the quiet seaside hotel was a human time bomb primed to explode. Then the first corpse was found, and the clock of terror began to tick.
Every man and woman in the resort retreat trembled in fear -- of the danger shadowing them, and of what they suspected about each other. Each one claimed to be innocent, but anyone could be guilty, and it was up to a husband and wife turned sleuths to follow a blood-slick trail of shameful secrets and pick a killer's name from an entire alphabet of evil. . . "; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall .


This atmospheric story, set during World War Two, finds Tommy and Tuppence doing what they do best – having an adventure. These unlikely Intelligence Service spies decide to help Queen and country by tracking down two ruthless traitors. The only clue to the traitors' identities is a government agent's dying words that lead them to the Sans Souci boarding house, where it'll take some extremely subtle detection work to establish which of the guests are the treacherous N and M.Published in 1941, the novel is one of two which Christie worked on simultaneously during the Second World War whilst living alone in London. She alternated her writing of The Body in the Library and N or M? to keep herself "fresh at task."
