“What sets Spider’s Web apart from most specimens of its overstuffed genre, is that its real motive is fun; all else — dropped clues, plot contrivances — is secondary. And the Lady of Copplestone Court, Clarissa Hailsham-Brown, has a talent to amuse.” – The New York Times
Clarissa, wife of a diplomat, is adept at spinning tales of adventure but when a murder takes place in her drawing room she finds live drama much harder to cope with. Desperate to dispose of the body before her husband arrives with an important politician, she enlists the help of her guests. Hilarity ensues when they are interrupted by the arrival of wry detective, Inspector Lord. A conscious parody of the detective thriller, Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour. There is tension and laughter in equal parts in an intricate plot of murder, police, drug addicts, invisible ink, hidden doorways and secret drawers.
