Synopsis

Published to tie-in with the new BBC TV adaptation. A man died for a crime he didn't commit … and the murderer is still among them.

No one felt sorry when Jacko Argyle died in prison. Everyone knew he had bludgeoned his mother to death with a poker from the fire.

But when a doctor turns up at the house two years later with proof of Jacko's innocence, the whole family is horrified. Because it can mean only one thing - that their mother's killer is still among them…

Ordeal by Innocence was cited by Agatha Christie in An Autobiography as one of her favourite novels, a detective story which plays on the shock of an innocent man's conviction and its impact on his family.

Following the success of And Then There Were None and The Witness for the Prosecution, a brand new adaptation by Sarah Phelps for the BBC shines new light on one of Agatha Christie's darkest and most accomplished whodunits.

The 2018 three-part BBC drama stars Bill Nighy, Anthony Boyle, Anna Chancellor, Morven Christie, Crystal Clarke, Christian Cooke, Alice Eve, Matthew Goode, Ella Purnell, Eleanor Tomlinson and Luke Treadaway.

With a heritage stretching back nearly 200 years, HarperCollins is one of the world's foremost English-language publishers, offering the best quality content right across the spectrum, from cutting-edge contemporary fiction to digital hymnbooks and pretty much everything in between. In the UK, the Glasgow-based William Collins & Sons was founded in 1819 and published a range of bibles, atlases and dictionaries, later including classic authors HG Wells, Agatha Christie, JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis. The original Harper Brothers Company was established in New York City in 1817 and over the years published the works of Mark Twain, the Bronte Sisters, Thackeray, Dickens, John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. In 1987, Harper & Row, as it had then become, was acquired by News Corporation. The worldwide group was formed following News Corp's 1990 acquisition of William Collins & Sons. Today we publish some of the world's foremost authors, from Nobel prize-winners to worldwide bestsellers recent successes including the Booker-winning Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel, and George RR Martin's blockbusting A Song of Ice and Fire series.
