Epigraph
Sad Cypress: Come away, come away, death
And in sad cypress let me be laid;
Fly away, fly away, breath;
I am slain by a fair cruel maid.
My shroud of white, stuck all with yew,
O prepare it!
My part of death, no one so true
Did share it.
Shakespeare
Dedication
Dead Man's Folly: To Humphrey and Peggie Trevelyan
To Robert Graves

Dear Robert
Since you are kind enough to say you like my stories. I venture to dedicate this book to you. All I ask is that you should sternly restrain your critical faculties (doubtless sharpened by your recent excesses in that line!) when reading it.
this is a story for your pleasure and NOT a candidate for Mr. Grave's literary pillory!
Your friend
Agatha Christie
Towards Zero: To Robert Graves
First words
The Murder at the Vicarage: It is difficult to know quite where to begin this story, but I have fixed my choice on a certain Wednesday at luncheon at the Vicarage.
Murder at the Vicarage:
It is difficult to know quite where to begin this story, but I have fixed my choice on a certain Wednesday at luncheon at the Vicarage.
Dead Man's Folly: It was Miss Lemon, Poirot's efficient secretary, who took the telephone call.
Sad Cypress: "Elinor Katharine Carlisle."
Towards Zero: The group round the fireplace was nearly all composed of lawyers or those who had an interest in the law.
Quotations
Come away, come away, death
And in sad cypress let me be laid;
Fly away, fly away, breath
I am slain by a fair cruel maid.
My should of white, stuck all with yew,
O prepare it!
My part of death, no one so true
Did share it.
Shakespeare
