A member of the family has taken them. The culprit has until midnight to confess and return the papers. A few minutes after 12 James Paradine is dead. It is left to Miss Silver to disentangle the threads that bind the Paradine family in a strange web of dislike, hatred, and fear.

  • Death in a White Tie

    "White Tie and Blackmail"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Death in a White Tie to be better than the print version?

    I love the book, but Benedict Cumberbatch's performance adds an extra dose of goodness.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Death in a White Tie?

    I loved the scene between Alleyn and Lord Robert where the inspector enlists his friend to "go undercover."


    Have you listened to any of Benedict Cumberbatch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to two others and all are absolutely wonderful. Aside from his deliciously sexy voice, he has a real knack for character voices and gave each their own personality.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The interactions between Alleyn and Troy were very sweet.


  • The Moving Finger (Dramatised)

    Story
    Would you listen to The Moving Finger (Dramatised) again? Why?

    The BBC radio full-cast adaptations are like old-time radio plays and each listen brings some new moment to enjoy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Moving Finger (Dramatised)?

    Of course the revelation of "whodunnit" is always fun.


    Have you listened to any of June Whitfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Miss Whitfield makes a wonderful Miss Marple. Just the right combination of shrewd judgement and elderly fussiness.


  • Death in the Clouds (Dramatised)

    "Vintage Christie"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Where does Death in the Clouds (Dramatised) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm a huge fan of all the BBC radio full-cast adaptations of Dame Agatha's books.


    What other book might you compare Death in the Clouds (Dramatised) to and why?

    Check out the BBC version of "Murder in Mesopotamia" for another winner.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    John Moffatt's Poirot is wonderfully fun.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved how Poirot took an interest in the love life of the lovely Miss Grey.


  • Evil Under the Sun

    "Another great BBC adaptation"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What did you love best about Evil Under the Sun?

    The performances were wonderful and the adaptation of the book very skillfully done.


    What other book might you compare Evil Under the Sun to and why?

    Any of the BBC recordings of Dame Agatha's books are worth a listen.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love John Moffat as Hercule Poirot. He really captures his fussiness and intelligence.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    There is no vacation from evil.

    First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

    Arthur Conan Doyle never wasted time in getting his stories moving. His plots are always direct and refreshingly lucid, and the narrative has a velocity that sweeps you along right to the end. This was no doubt a large part of his immense worldwide success. Not surprisingly, each time he tried to end the series, his fans would howl in protest. But, as he says in the preface to his last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, all good things must come to an end.

    Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, first serialized in a magazine in 1930, is best known through the iconic Humphrey Bogart film of 1941. But it was the book that created the classic "noir" genre with its tough private detective threading his cool way between the criminals and the law. Sam Spade, the private eye solving the mystery of the Maltese statuette, was the template for Philip Marlowe and a host of others…. but they come no more shrewd and cunning with Hammett peppering the text with one-liners.
