** The Hollow by Agatha Christie

The Hollow gathers rich people in a fancy country house, where one of them is sadly shot to death with one of the many firearms the owner collects. Since the slain man has a wife, a mistress, and a jealous ex-mistress, and the owner’s wife has shown to be an accurate sharpshooter, the possibilities are many and Hercule Poirot will untangle the mess, using his usual techniques of deduction and very few modern scientific techniques. Set in a completely outdated setting and set of manners, the story may be as remarkable for its atmosphere as its (rather incredible) denouement.
