THE MAN IN THE BROWN SUIT The Colonel Race, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Gabrielle de Cuir, John Lee

Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1924

While this mystery was first published in 1924, narrators Gabrielle de Cuir and John Lee enliven the characters through their fresh, well-paced, pitch-perfect performances. Anne Beddingfield pursues her dream of becoming an adventurer and travels by ship to South Africa to unravel a mystery. De Cuir's portrayal of Beddingfield projects a feisty character whom listeners will cheer for. John Lee masterfully delivers extracts from the diary of the imperious Sir Eustace Pedlar, MP. This book introduces the mysterious Colonel Race, who appears in subsequent Christie mysteries. Note: Colonialism, racism, and sexism appear in the context of the early 1920s. De Cuir and Lee expertly shepherd listeners through Christie's magic with perfectly timed twists and turns. E.Q.
