Channelling Agatha 4

Lawyers have been approached by the owners of the Agatha Christie copyright to determine if Jessica Adams's story, "The Circle", has plagiarised Christie's story "The Idol House of Astarte". If Adams has not contracted lawyers of her own then I strongly suggest she does so. The best course of action, as I see it, is for her to acknowledge the similarities in the stories and to apologise for any inadvertent copying. No-one in their right mind will think worse of her for it. But the longer she denies any wrong-doIng, deliberate or otherwise, the harder it will be to come back.
