Who dunnit in Agatha Christie’s ‘The Mousetrap’
Agtha Christie comes forth with another hit about a group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer.
The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, than the jurist is killed.
