"This is the best of the novels starring Christie's Miss Marple" (New York Times)
"A model of complex skulduggery" (New Yorker)
"Ingenious" (Times Literary Supplement)
As an avid audiobook listener I think this may be the first Christie I have listened to. No surprises that Richard E Grant's performance is superb. At some points when I could not believe that he was creating all the voices. I would highly recommend this performance of this great murder mystery. Masterful!
