Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Davina Porter

Mystery & Suspense • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

This mystery is even more entertaining with the infusion of performer Davina Porter's witty interpretation, becoming delightfully hilarious with her myriad accents, expressive rejoinders, wide-ranging pitch, inebriated drawls, and spot-on portrayals of key characters. This is no small feat, given the number of people gathered at the eighteenth-century manor of millionaire Sir Adrian Beauclerk-Fisk, an elderly mystery author who has announced his imminent wedding. Within hours, the murders begin to pile up, revealing contempt and ulterior motives among the multiplying suspects. Malliet's quirky mirth shines in this Agatha Award-winning mystery featuring Detective Inspector St. Just. Ironically, before his death Sir Adrian had spent his literary career shamelessly mimicking the craft of Dame Agatha Christie. A.W.
