Agatha Christie. A healthy young man dies in his sleep, despite the ringing of eight separate alarm clocks Gerry Wade had proved himself to be a champion sleeper; so the other house guests decided to play a practical joke on him. For Jimmy Thesiger in particular, the words "Seven Dials" were to take on a new and chilling significance.

Write a Review. The Seven Dials Mystery 4. Guest More than 1 year ago I loved the book. It kept me interested the entire way through.
Every time I would get to the end of a chapter or think that I had figured out the mystery; new evidence would pop up and prove me wrong or leave me hanging. I had many guesses about the murderer ,but would never in a million years have guessed the answer to this mystery. This book was so good; I think that I could read this book over and over and never get bored with it.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago I am a fan of mystery books and Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors. This is an early Christie writing where the reader meets Superintendent Battle of Scotland Yard for the first time. Battle is a mainstay in many of Christie's later mysteries. The other characters are first timer's and very young and spontaneous. Agatha Christie is clever and thought provoking throughout the book and keeps the reader guessing to the end.
The Seven Dials Mystery (Agatha Christie Signature Edition) (English Edition)
A great read! Anonymous More than 1 year ago Seven dials is in fact a pastiche of the'thrillers' popular in the twenties and -at the end- a total subversion of the tropes of that genre that some readers find hard to stomach. You will be surprised, and possibly dismayed. This one is the second one set at the Stately Home of Chimneys in England. The first one, The Secret of Chimneys, takes place four years earlier and involves the missing heir to the throne of a fictional European country, a stolen government contract, the Comrades of the Black Hand or something like that, and a very satisfying love story.
This one differs only in the details; the feel is just the same.

I listened to this one, and I do have a few complaints about the audio version. The reader, whose name I can't locate, did fine with the voices of most of the major characters, but she had a tendency to make the rest of the young girls screechy and shrill. I didn't like Superintendent Battle's accent either. She did a good job at making them all sound different, but she was much too screechy now and then, and the American woman at the very end was just dreadful.
Realising that Sir Stanley is staying one night, they deduce that any theft will be attempted that night. Jimmy and Bill agree to keep watch, changing over at 3. On the first watch in the hallway at 2. He continues his watch from there. Bundle, acting alone, changes her clothes and climbs down the ivy outside her room. She runs into Superintendent Battle, on his own watch outside. He persuades her to go back.

She does so, and then checks on Jimmy in the hall. Finding him gone, she goes to Bill's bedroom but finds that she has erred and is in the Countess's empty room. Bundle hears a tremendous struggle in the library, and two gunshots. Loraine Wade arrives at Wyvern at the dead of night. A few moments before the commotion, a paper packet lands at her feet near the darkened terrace. She picks it up and sees a man climbing down the ivy from above her.
She turns and runs almost straight into Battle whose questions are interrupted by the fight in the library. Running there, they find Jimmy unconscious and shot through his right arm. The household is awakened by the noise and pours into the room. Jimmy comes round and tells how he fought the man who climbed down the ivy. Sir Stanley finds that the formula is gone. Battle is not perturbed as Loraine still holds the dropped packet and is able to return its precious contents.
The Countess is discovered in the library, unconscious behind a screen. She says she came down for a book to read, and fainted from fear.
Bundle spots a mole on the Countess's shoulder through her negligee: she is a member of Seven Dials! The next morning, Battle finds a charred, left-handed glove with teeth marks, in the fireplace. He theorizes that the thief threw the gun onto the lawn from the terrace and then climbed back into the house via the ivy. Jimmy looks through Sir Oswald's study. He finds no evidence against Sir Oswald. Bill goes to Jimmy's London flat. Ronny Devereux's executors have sent him a letter written by Ronny, and Bill is amazed.
Jimmy rings up Bundle and Loraine and tells them to meet him and Bill at the Seven Dials club, Bill's story being "the biggest scoop of the century. Jimmy arrives, having left Bill outside in the car. Bundle shows Jimmy the room where the Seven Dials meet.
