Lord Edgware Dies


Lord Edgware Dies is a work of detective fiction by British writer Agatha Christie, published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club in September 1933 and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company later in the same year under the title of Thirteen at Dinner. Attending a performance by impressionist Carlotta Adams, Hercule Poirot is approached by actress Jane Wilkinson. A few days later Lord Edgware is found dead in his house. Two witnesses say his estranged wife came to see him on the night of the murder. At the same time, fourteen people at Sir Montagu Corner’s party are quite sure that the same woman has been with them. Prior to her husband’s demise, Lady Edgware enquires the sleuth to persuade the Lord to divorce her. She has tried many times through lawyers and letters but failed. When Poirot speaks about the issue to the husband, it surprises the detective that the other has had a change of mind. What makes him being murdered apart from it? Lady Edgware’s alibi puzzles Inspector Japp. In the meantime, the motive for money is revealed. Coupled with strange occurrences and opportunity the evidence point at the Lord’s nephew later. For he will benefit from his uncle’s death. Further discussions of the case bring about five questions, of which the answers are required before bringing somebody to justice.  More importantly, one murder won’t be enough because it is a habit.
