The Poisoned Chocolates Case

The British Library
A gem from 1929, republished from the British Library's collection of British crime writing from the golden age of detective fiction. Joan Bendix is killed by a poisoned box of liqueur chocolates that cannot have been intended for her to eat. The police investigation rapidly reaches a dead end. Chief Inspector Moresby calls on Roger Sheringham and his Crimes Circle - six amateur but intrepid detectives - to consider the case. The evidence is laid before the Circle and the members take it in turn to offer a solution. Each is more convincing than the last, slowly filling in the pieces of the puzzle, until the dazzling conclusion. This new edition of Anthony Berkeley Cox's (1893-1971) classic tale includes an alternative ending by the Golden Age writer Christianna Brand (1907-88), as well as a brand new solution devised specially for the British Library by the crime novelist and Golden Age expert Martin Edwards (b.1955).
