While recovering from amnesia, Dr. Arthur Calgary realizes he could have provided an alibi in a scandalous murder trial that ends with the conviction of Jacko Argyle. The victim was Jacko's mother, and to make matters worse, Jacko dies in prison. But the young man's innocence means someone else killed the Argyle matriarch--and this person will certainly kill again to remain in the shadows. (May) Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.

Soon to be a limited streaming series starring Anna Chancellor and Bill Nighy

Considered by critics the one of the best of Agatha Christie's later novels, and a personal favorite for Christie herself, Ordeal by Innocence is a psychological thriller involving crimes from both past and present.

According to the courts, Jacko Argyle bludgeoned his mother to death with a poker. The sentence was life imprisonment. But when Dr. Arthur Calgary arrives with the proof that confirms Jacko's innocence, it is too late—Jacko died behind bars following a bout of pneumonia. Worse still, the doctor's revelations reopen old wounds in the family, increasing the likelihood that the real murderer will strike again.
