Welcome to Monkswell Manor, a recently converted guesthouse run by a young couple, Mollie and Giles Ralston. After checking in their first guests, things go very wrong; phone lines go dead, snow mounds up around the Manor, and they are trapped in a house with a murderer. In Mollie’s words, “That’s what happens in a nightmare. You’re somewhere in the middle of friends and then you suddenly look at their faces and they’re not your friends any longer...Perhaps you can’t trust anybody—perhaps everybody’s a stranger”. The Mousetrap is a classic theatrical whodunit written by the greatest mystery writer of all time, Agatha Christie.
