One of the best of the best Audible narrators!

Richard E. Grant is oe of the best of the best Audible narrators! His readings of Agatha Christie novels are true standouts. Hopefully, the wiser people at Audible will hire him to narrate whatever works he chooses! The man has taste and talent galore.
