Agatha Christie's The Man in the Brown Suit

MYSTERY/THRILLER. Adapted from the novel by Agatha Christie. After her father dies, Anne Beddingfeld heads for London in search of adventure but soon finds herself drawn into a world of secret agents, international criminals, deception, murder, and intrigue. After witnessing a man fall to his death from a train platform in London, Anne picks up a mysterious note that reads, “17.1 22 Kilmorden Castle.” The next day, a woman is found murdered at a member of Parliament’s estate, Mill House, and a “man in a brown suit” is identified as a suspect. Anne travels to Mill House, where she finds a film canister and learns that “Kilmorden Castle” is the name of an ocean liner due to set sail on January 17. Anne immediately books passage and travels to Cape Town, South Africa in search of the mysterious “man in the brown suit,” but her search is thwarted by “The Colonel,” a criminal mastermind and agent provocateur. An intricate, multifaceted mystery complete with deception, disguises, impersonation, and even a little romance.
