The Lonely God is given here:
Frank Oliver returns to England from years of overseas service only to realise he no longer knows anyone there.
On visiting the British Museum he encounters ‘the lonely god’ who seems to be experiencing the same sense of isolation that he is.
Will this strange deity help relieve him of his loneliness?

A romantic story, Agatha Christie later considered it to be ‘regrettably sentimental’.
