Sparkling cyanide – Agatha Christie
Six people were thinking of Rosemary Barton who had died nearly a year ago…
Book I – ROSEMARY
“What can I do to drive away remembrances from mine eyes?”
Iris Marle was thinking about her sister, Rosemary.
For nearly a year she had deliberately tried to put the thought of Rosemary away from her. She hadn’t wanted to remember. The blue cyanosed face, the convulsed clutching fingers…
The contrast between that and the gay lovely Rosemary of the day before… Well, perhaps not exactly gay. She had had ‘flu – she had been depressed, run down… All that had been brought out at the inquest. Iris herself had laid stress on it. It accounted, didn’t it, for Rosemary’s suicide?
Once the inquest was over, Iris had deliberately tried to put the whole thing out of her mind. Of what good was remembrance? Forget it all!
