Even if you have heard the dramatised or abridged versions of this story, this is well worth a listen. It's one I am sure I will enjoy again and again (as I do with other Insoector Alleyn stories. Ngaio Marsh never did produce a pot boiler. Every single one of her full length Alleyn mysteries is beautifully written - a joy to read or hear. You

Another great story with excellent narration. I prefer Nadia May/Wanda McCaddon (and have purchased books based on the fact that she narrates them!) but James Saxon creates great characters. A book to listen to again.

Wonderful narration of a classic adventure

The study of language is fascinating and this is Bryson at his fascinating best. Wonderful nuggets if information about American English, English English and the conked relationship between them. Plus a smattering of Bryson opinions about things that matter to us all. Great narration from William Roberts. A boom to listen to again and again.

Disappointing narrator

I love other female narrators for Ngaio Marsh's work (Nadia May for example) but Jane Asher's delivery was ponderous and dull and she mispronounces Alleyn throughout. Even if the reader is unaware that it is 'Allen' and not 'Allain', the publisher should be. A bit slapdash and shoddy. A shame, because the story is a corker.

Another Bryson gem, narrated by the golden voice of William Roberts. A great adventure on the Appalachian Trail.

Excellent narration by Hugh Fraser. A classic Poirot story, set in Romantic faraway places. Most enjoyable and will certainly merit another listen.
