Volume 62 in the Agatha Christie Collection (1961) Limited edition of 1000 copies worldwide To understand the strange goings on at The Pale Horse Inn, Mark Easterbrook knew he had to begin at the beginning. But where exactly was the beginning? Was it the savage blow to the back of Father Gorman's head? Or the priest's visit, just minutes before, to a woman on her death bed? Or was there a deeper significance to the violent squabble which Mark Easterbrook had himself witnessed earlier?

Numerous residents are succumbing to unexpected illnesses. None are murdered outright, and their names are all on a list offered at the deathbed of one woman.
This book was somewhat slow to draw me in. As is the case with many Agatha Christie novels, the early details turn out to be crucial.

This was the first of Mrs. Christie’s book of which I didn’t enjoy the beginning. It took me several pages to get into it, but since it was Agatha Christie I kept reading—and am glad I did: I thoroughly enjoyed it. I watched two movie versions of this book and they have very little resemblance to it. One of them even gets Miss Marple in the story! Highly recommended.
