Sam Neill

A decorated war hero, General MacArthur is decent, upstanding and thoroughly romantic.

A patriot, no doubt about it, yet there is much about the war that haunts him – much that he finds unspeakable.

Sam Neill on General MacArthur

"As for so many millions of others, the battles of the First World War took their toll on him – there wasn’t anyone that came out of that war undamaged. He is a damaged man.

"This book is set on the cusp of the Second World War and that must have been very much on Agatha Christie’s mind when she wrote this book."
