Ordeal by Innocence [Elektronisk resurs]
Considered by critics the one of the best of Agatha Christie's later novels, and a personal favorite for Christie herself, Ordeal by Innocence is a psychological thriller involving crimes from both past and present.According to the courts, Jacko Argyle bludgeoned his mother to death with a poker. The sentence was life imprisonment. But when Dr. Arthur Calgary arrives with the proof that confirms Jacko's innocence, it is too late-Jacko died behind bars following a bout of pneumonia. Worse still, the doctor's revelations reopen old wounds in the family, increasing the likelihood that the real murderer will strike again. [Elib]
Not just a murder is enough for the killer who will do anything to silence others that seem to figure out who really is to blame for the first murder. A family drama where there are only a few suspected when the murder investigation must be taken up again. Agatha Christie has written an easy to read crime novels where several people are trying to get on the solution. Good reading.
