The Mousetrap

The Mousetrap

Illustration of a house bending backwards with a stick propping it up and a plate of cheese underneath with the words, The Mousetrap next to it.

The snowed-in setting of this countryside guesthouse could’ve been the stuff of Christmas carols. But this is Agatha Christie we’re talking about, and there’s a killer on the loose. This spine-tingling whodunnit has run for a record-setting 70 years and counting in London.
