I'd rate this short story a PG for dark themes and violence.

This short story is not Parker Pine or Harley Quinn as it has been labeled . It is a very good non series detective short story .

What is madness??
...We all practice a certain amount of self-deception, and when we carry it so far as to believe we are the Czar of Russia, we are shut up or restrained. But there is a long road before we reach that point. At what particular spot on it shall we erect a post and say,"On this side sanity, on the other madness?" It can't be done...if a man suffering from a delusion happened to hold his tongue about it, in all probability we should never be able to distinguish him from a normal ind
Not sure why this is labeled as a Parker Pyne short story, as that character doesn't appear at all. If anything, it seems very suited to Satterthwaite & Quin. Would make for a very thrilling adaptation, I think. Christopher Lee has a marvelous voice, but I think I would have enjoyed this more had I read it myself instead of listening. Still very good though, wonderful surprises.

This was a fun quick read! I think it's safe to say that i'm an Agatha Christie fan!
Middling Christie, ably acted by Christopher Lee.
A seance and a psychic premonition. A twisty short story.

ვრცელ ნაწარმოებთან შედარებით ზედმეტად სუსტად მომეჩვენა ყველა, მარტივად გამოსაცნობად და , აი, ისეთად, რომ გგონია, ახლა რაღაც სხვაგვარად უნდა იყოს და , აი, ეს არის და ჩაიხლართება ცოტათი მაინც, მარა, წკაპ და მორჩა.
Feeling disappointed
