Mystery & Suspense • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

A delightful reading by Jonathan Cecil makes these eight unabridged stories by Agatha Christie a choice way to spend a cozy evening. The collection features some of Christie’s most engaging, eccentric detectives, including the fastidious Parker-Pyne in the title story and "The Regatta Mystery," and the man of the “little gray cells,” Hercule Poirot, in "The Second Gong" and "Yellow Iris." Harley Quin and the enigmatic Mr. Satterthwaite’s slow revelations keep the listener thinking in "The Harlequin Tea Set," and "The Love Detectives." The last two stories, "Next to a Dog," and "Magnolia Blossom," don’t spotlight the detectives, but provide further proof, if any is needed, of Dame Agatha’s wit and insights into human motives. Cecil brings his extraordinary range of voices to Christie’s carefully wrought gems with winning results. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
