Agatha Christie’s The Hollow

Norwich Lanes

An unhappy game of romantic follow-the-leader explodes into murder one weekend at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell (arguably Christie’s finest comic grande dame).

Dr. Cristow, the Harley Street lothario, is at the centre of the trouble when, assembled in one place, we find his dull but devoted wife, Gerda, his mistress, Henrietta and his former lover and Hollywood film star, Veronica. Also visiting are love rival Edward, and disheartened cousin Midge.

As the romantic associations grow, so does the list of potential suspects, as a shot rings out across the grounds and house. Nearly everyone has a motive, but only one of them did the deed.
