Miss Jane Marple’s holiday in London at the well-run, traditional Bertram’s Hotel turns out to be more than she bargained for as her suspicions are aroused by some of the guests. Her worst fears are confirmed when the doorman is murdered in strange circumstances. With the help of clever Chief Inspector Davey, who is occupied with the investigation of a series of robberies, the complicated plot is satisfactorily concluded. Rosemary Leach so skillfully chooses voices for the characters that there is no doubt that this is exactly what the author intended each to sound like. With perfect pacing and exquisite timing, the story is seamlessly told. The delivery is so successful that one actually forgets that only one person is reading; the performance sounds as if it is being delivered by an entire cast of actors. S.S.R.
