'All his stories are amusing, intriguing, and he is a master of the final twist' - Agatha Christie'One of the most stunning trick stories in the history of detective fiction' - Julian SymonsGraham and Joan Bendix have apparently succeeded in making that eighth wonder of the modern world, a happy marriage. And into the middle of it there drops, like a clap of thunder, a box of chocolates.Joan Bendix is killed by a poisoned box of liqueur chocolates that cannot have been intended for her to eat.

The police investigation rapidly reaches a dead end.

Chief Inspector Moresby calls on Roger Sheringham and his Crimes Circle - six amateur but intrepid detectives - to consider the case.

The evidence is laid before the Circle and the members take it in turn to offer a solution.

Each is more convincing than the last, slowly filling in the pieces of the puzzle, until the dazzling conclusion.
