A group of strangers is stranded in a country boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage.  Others include a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone.  Into their midst comes a policeman traveling on skis – he’s following clues from a recent murder in London and soon after he arrives, one of the guests is killed. The children’s nursery rhyme says there were three blind mice…two down and one to go.  To get to the rationale of the murderer’s pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present and rattles a lot of skeletons.  This play is another famous Agatha Christie who-dunnit with a switch finish!  Chalk up another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time.
