1946 The Hollow
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
'The Hollow' features Christie's famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, best known for using his 'little grey cells' to solve cases.
The first edition of this work, with an unclipped dustwrapper. This work is an example of a 'country house mystery' and was the first novel in four years to feature Poirot. This was the longest gap in the Poirot novels. The country house setting for this novel was inspired by Francis L Sullivan's house. Sullivan portrayed Poirot in the plays 'Black Coffee' and 'Peril at End House'. In addition he also played the lead in the 1953 production of 'Witness for the Prosecution', for which he won a Tony.
In America this novel was issued under the title 'Murder after Hours'.
