Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1930

Narrator Ian Masters delivers vintage Christie with delightfully proper English accents. His portrayal of Miss Jane Marple, village spinster on the trail of a killer, is quintessential Christie; Marple's sharp intelligence is appropriately depicted as deceptive ordinariness. When the despised village vicar is found shot in the head, Masters delivers Marple's enthusiasm for gossip, while hiding her concern over the killer's identity. However, tension builds as Marple uncovers scandalous secrets that lead to someone with something to hide. Masters's dramatic range of voices brings each character to life for the listener. His delivery will delight Agatha Christie fans. A nice length for a short commute. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
