The beautiful, resourceful, and highly intelligent Emily Trefuses really deserves her own series in the Christie oeuvre, but instead she appears the one time in this neat little charmer. Emily arrives on the scene to rescue her ne’er-do-well fiancé, Jim, who is the prime suspect in the death of his uncle, one Captain Enderby. The fun comes in when neighbors, pursuing a party game known as “making the table talk,” receive a message from beyond: M-U-R-D-E-R! Fine entertainment, that. Nathaniel Parker has a finely nuanced voice that lends itself perfectly to the steadily plodding DCI and the over-the-top-Australians who come over just to see a real winter. Great fun and an extra little surprise ending. No one does it better than Agatha Christie. D.G. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
