by | Read by Hugh Fraser

Mystery & Suspense • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1934

This satisfying collection of short stories emphasizes romance and humor as Hugh Fraser transports listeners into genteel British society. Christie makes each story a perfect gem. What makes Agatha Christie such a perennial favorite is her ability to make each character a fully developed individual. When a young man finds an emerald in his pocket after taking the wrong trousers in a beach changing room, Christie makes listeners feel his confusion and fear; at the same time she keeps a deft hand with the light love stories woven in among the murders. Each tale is a tiny self-contained adventure, and, delivered by the talented Fraser, makes for fine entertainment. D.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
