Description

Time is ticking away for a murderer in Agatha Christie's classic, The Clocks, as Hercule Poirot investigates the strange case of a corpse surrounded by numerous timepieces in a blind woman's house.

Sheila Webb expected to find a respectable blind lady waiting for her at 19 Wilbraham Crescent--not the body of a middle-aged man sprawled across the living room floor. But when old Miss Pebmarsh denies sending for her in the first place, or of owning all the clocks that surround the body, it's clear that they are going to need a very good detective.

"This crime is so complicated that it must be quite simple," declares Poirot. But there's a murderer on the loose, and time is ticking away....

Notes

Description
Sheila Webb, typist-for-hire, has arrived at 19 Wilbraham Crescent in the seaside town of Crowdean to accept a new job. What she finds is a well-dressed corpse surrounded by five clocks. Mrs. Pebmarsh, the blind owner of No. 19, denies all knowledge of ringing Sheila's secretarial agency and asking for her by name -- yet someone did. Nor does she own that many clocks. And neither woman seems to know the victim. Colin Lamb, a young intelligence specialist working a case of his own at the nearby naval yard, happens to be on the scene at the time of Sheila Webb's ghastly discovery. Lamb knows of only one man who can properly investigate a crime as bizarre and baffling as what happened inside No. 19 -- his friend and mentor, Hercule Poirot.
