MURDER AT THE GALLOP: MURDER AT THE GALLOP is based on Agatha Christie's AFTER THE FUNERAL. When wealthy old Mr. Enderby dies, his not-so-bereaved relatives gather for the reading of the will. There, Aunt Cora inquires as to the cause of Mr. Enderby's death, only to be silenced in the same fashion.

When she cries "Murder!" to the police, they tell her that she was only dreaming. Undaunted, she sets out to find the truth, even if it means uncovering an extra body or two.
