Frederick Knott’s 1950s classic British thriller is a masterpiece of suspense and intricate plotting and became a worldwide success through Alfred Hitchcock’s film starring Grace Kelly.

Wealthy and elegant Sheila Wendice is leading a seemingly happy life with her husband Tony, an ex-tennis player, until one day, she receives a blackmailing letter about a brief affair she had with crime-fiction writer Max Halliday. She hasn’t the slightest suspicion that Tony has long been aware of her secret. Wanting revenge as well as her money, he is meticulously planning her murder, perfect alibi included. It all seems to be going according to plan until it falters in the most unexpected way…
