A classic Marple mystery, read by Emilia Fox.In utter disbelief Miss Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr Rafiel - an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels.Recognising in Miss Marple a natural flair for justice, Mr Rafiel had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. It was most intriguing.

I was really disappointed with the story. I've read/listened to lots of Agatha Christies, and particularly like Miss Marple. However I didn't enjoy this one at all. The story is a bit disjointed, and for me the unusual approach just didn't work. Instead of the usual murder/murders within a cohesive group of people, with a one-location setting, this story is all over the place.

Also, the ludicrous attitude to rape (not even old-fashioned - just plain idiotic) could be distressing if you have experienced this.

L'histoire de Lauren et Arthur défie la raison. Cette jeune femme blottie dans le placard d'Arthur n'est pas vraiment là. Ou plutôt elle est là, mais seul Arthur peut la voir ; pourtant elle n'est ni un esprit ni un fantôme, et si elle semble joliment réelle, parle, râle et sourit, son véritable corps est au cinquième étage de l'hôpital de San Francisco, en état de coma dépassé. Un accident de voiture, six mois auparavant... Comment réagiriez-vous en découvrant au fond du placard de votre salle de bains une rayonnante jeune femme ?

This audiobook is severely abridged. It says 'unabridged' in the description but that is incorrect.

Usually love Paul Temple stories, but Steve's phoney 40's accent is irritating and the Cairo-based plot doesn't hold together.

Would you try another book written by Joel Thielke or narrated by Joel Thielke?

This is just a cd of soothing music with hardly any useful words - the words are mainly talking you into a hypnotised state. A VERY few positive words and then music. Complete waste of money.

Would you ever listen to anything by Joel Thielke again?

No

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Total sense of having been conned

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money
