Storyline

Holidaying in his childhood village trainee solicitor Jack Hartingdon hears a woman's voice crying for help in the vicinity of the golf course. Then Felise, the occupant of a cottage by the golf course, claims that she too has heard the voice and seen the ghost of a murdered woman holding a blue jar. Jack's friend Dr. Lavington arranges for a seance in Felise's cottage to lay the ghost, using as bait an identical blue jar belonging to Jack's family. But is there really a ghost or is Jack the victim of a plot to steal the jar? Written by don @ minifie-1

While this fellow ends up looking the prize turkey of the piece as it goes, he and his aged relative fare the best in the end, which establishes the settled order of -- well, the settled order. The miscreants are not depicted here as meeting their justice, but we kind of know they will. Instead, we see the young enterprising chap and his aged relative succeeding to their course of well intention into continued well being. Right ho.

Well acted early short story with a touch of the supernatural. While Christie, like any prolific mystery genre author, dealt some in the supernatural, she never exalted it as darkly supreme. This was rightly handled in this instance, I thought.

Bung ho.
