Summary
Muriel Spark's 'Memento Mori', first published in 1959, is among the finest novels by one of the most witty and inclusive British writers of recent times. It tells the acidly funny story of a group of elderly people who start to receive threatening phone calls telling them 'remember, you must die'

Summary
In late 1950s London, a group of aging eccentrics is brought together by a series of uncanny events. Lettie Colston is the first to receive an anonymous phone call from an insinuating voice reminding her that she must die. Soon, ten of Lettie's friends also receive the call. In the flurry that results from these seemingly supernatural messages, a bizarre investigation is launched that reveals a network of deception binding the group, including such dark secrets as blackmail and adultery
