Agatha Christie Wiki

In the novel Sleeping Murder, Jim Kimble is the husband of Lily Kimble. He was not at all keen about the idea of his wife responding to the newspaper advertisement asking anyone who knew Helen Halliday to contact some lawyers in London. Lily thought it might be the police (she always speculated there was a murder), or there might be money in it. But Jim told her to leave it alone. In his opinion she had nothing to go on. It was all "woman's chatter".
