One left, not the best clue thinking about it – the word impudence is a bit of a foolish mistake.

Oh, I thought you were kidding!

Yep, Agatha's Folly.

I'm not sure if 'impudence' should have been 'imprudence'.

I got hung up on it being Linford or the Auction house and couldn't think of any other Christie that it might be!

In terms of the cryptic clue guide what sort of category does that clue fit into?

That's a compound clue, a number of straight clues together.
