ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE

by | Read by Robin Bailey

Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1958

The reopening of the case of the murder of Mrs. Argyle confronts her family with endless questions and suspicions. The unraveling of relationships as past events are scrutinized presents an excellent choice for audio. Christie’s superb plotting lends itself to the telling of the tale, and Robin Bailey’s masterful pacing makes the reader as unnerved as the family of suspects. The internal voices of each character are smoothly and subtly done, projecting very credible emotions. Bailey also enlivens the dialogue with judicious use of accents and inflection. Though the characters aren’t as colorful as some of Christie’s others, the compulsion to resolve the crime propels the characters as well as the listener.
