Summary

A classic Agatha Christie short story, available individually for the first time in digital audio, performed by Christopher Lee.

A young man has seemingly lost his mind overnight. He can no longer speak, use his hands or recognise his nearest and dearest. Dr Carstairs, an expert in mental health, has been called upon to investigate his condition. But he is distracted by the presence of a large grey cat that only he can see....

Critic reviews

"The plots are so good that one marvels...most of them would have made a full length thriller." ( Daily Mirror)

Sir Christopher Lee brings the story alive

I finally found a story by Agatha Christie that has not immediately thrilled me. although an enjoyable short story it is the amazing Reading by Sir Christopher Lee that brought the story alive. I have listened to story now many times was travelling on the bus to work.

Just Don't

I know all the arguments about 'a story of its time' but the barely disguised racism just renders this unlistenable.
