CHRISTIE, Agatha. Ordeal by Innocence. London: Collins Crime Club, 1958.

When Dr Calgary, recovering from an extended period of amnesia, realises he alone could have provided an alibi in a scandalous murder trial, the case is re-opened, leading the family of the victim to re-assess their own culpability in the crime. Rumoured to be Christie's favourite novel, Ordeal by Innocence was controversially made into a BBC crime drama in 2018, with a different ending and killer to Christie's original plot.
