A news report on the radio reports a recent murder in London. Mollie and Giles Ralston, the young owners of the once-regal Monkswell Manor estate recently converted into a guesthouse, hardly notice the news. They are far too busy preparing for their first guests, and concerned that the heavy snow falling outside may cause problems. Their guests arrive safely, but then the Manor becomes snowed in, cutting them all off from the outside world.

A policeman arrives on skis, announcing that he suspects that one of the seven people at the Manor may be the reported killer. The suspects include: the married couple operating Monkswell Manor, a mysterious young woman who has been living abroad, the young man with wild hair and attire who says that he was named after a famous architect, a retired army major, a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone, or an unexpected visitor who claims his car has run into a snowdrift. After a second murder, Sergeant Trotter is convinced that the murderer is indeed at Monkswell Manor. Is the murderer one of the Innkeepers? Is it the unmarried woman with the curious background? During his interrogation, Sergeant Trotter uncovers the many mysterious secrets of everyone present as he tries to solve the mystery in true Agatha Christie style. mystery in true
