The Seven Dials Mystery (by Agatha Christie)

Having never read an Agatha Christie book in over forty years, I was rapidly catching up lost time... and embarked on the sixth in three weeks. What an excellent story this one turned out to be!

A young man dies in mysterious circumstances at a country houseparty. When a friend of his is shot, shortly afterwards, other friends become suspicious. The way leads to a night club, and the discovery of a secret masked group called 'Seven Dials'.

As four young people try to find the ringleader, events become more violent, with a very clever and surprising end. Enjoyable - and highly recommended.
