Heiress-turned-bohemian-beat-girl Thomasina Tucker meets an unfortunate end in a brawl with another woman. But her death would have passed unnoticed if not for Father Gorman dying at the hands of a stranger days later. The connection? A list of names hidden in the priest's shoe--Thomasina's among them--which leads to an inn called The Pale Horse and three unusual ladies who each has a secret of her own. Reissue.

Numerous residents are succumbing to unexpected illnesses. None are murdered outright, and their names are all on a list offered at the deathbed of one woman.
This book was somewhat slow to draw me in. As is the case with many Agatha Christie novels, the early details turn out to be crucial.

This was the first of Mrs. Christie’s book of which I didn’t enjoy the beginning. It took me several pages to get into it, but since it was Agatha Christie I kept reading—and am glad I did: I thoroughly enjoyed it. I watched two movie versions of this book and they have very little resemblance to it. One of them even gets Miss Marple in the story! Highly recommended.
