A Miss Marple mystery brings out the best in Rosalind Ayres. She can be male or female to such a degree that one forgets who’s narrating. Yewtree Lodge is full of unsavory types, any one of whom could have murdered business tycoon Rex Fortescue. When two more guests are murdered, Miss Marple gets involved because one of the victims, Gladys Martin, was once her maid. Ayres is wonderful with all her voices—from Miss Ramsbottom, the elderly aunt upstairs, to Mary Dove, the overly composed housekeeper. Her best impersonation is Gladys, adenoidal and pathetic, the memorable voice of the innocent led astray by evil. B.H.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
