DEATH OF A GLUTTON

by | Read by Davina Porter

Mystery & Suspense • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

Maria Worth organizes a group of wealthy singles for a matchmaking weekend in Lochdubh, Scotland. Her partner, Peta Gore, isn't supposed to be there but appears, unannounced and unwanted. Peta is grossly overweight, a vulgarian who shovels in food, slurping, sucking, and generally disgusting everyone nearby. Maria fears her careful plans will be ruined. Instead, the guests draw together against the obnoxious Peta. When Peta is found murdered, an apple jammed in her mouth, Police Constable Hamish Macbeth is called. Davina Porter's reading makes Peta's sex-kitten niece and each of the eight marriage-minded guests silly, serious, or ominous, as called for. Porter's performance adds another layer to Hamish and Priscilla's on-again, off-again romance. The seventh in the series, this delicious cozy is sure to please Beaton's many fans. S.J.H.
