The Message

A seance at a remote house spells out a man's murder. Agatha Christie mystery with Geoffrey Whitehead as Inspector Narracott. From January 1990.

A blizzard has hit England. In the tiny village of Sittaford, on the fringes of Dartmoor, a party of six is gathered in Sittaford House, home of Captain Trevelyan. He's rented the house out for the winter and is staying in a nearby village. As evening draws in, a séance is proposed. But it reveals something far more sinister than they'd all anticipated...
