    On doctor's orders, Bertie Wooster retires to sample the bucolic delights of Maiden Eggesford. But his idyll is rudely shattered by Aunt Dahlia who wants him to nobble a racehorse. Similar blots on Bertie's horizon come in the shape of Major Plank, the African explorer, Vanessa Cook, proud beauty and 'moulder of men', and Orlo Porter, who seems to have nothing else to do but to think of sundering Bertie's head from his body.

    I enjoy P.G. Wodehouse and Wooster and Jeeves for a light humorous listen. Some narrators are not suited to these characters. But Jonathan Cecil is very good. I highly recommend his version of these books.

    In hot and dusty Delhi, Puri's main work comes from screening prospective marriage partners, a job once the preserve of aunties and family priests. But when an honest public litigator is accused of murdering his maidservant, it takes all of Puri's resources to investigate. How will he trace the fate of the girl, known only as Mary, in a population of more than one billion? Who is taking pot shots at him and his prize chilli plants?

    I enjoyed this book very much. The complexity is on a par with Christie. Since it is set in India one has a chance to learn a little about that country's culture.

    I have listened to hundreds of Audio Books, and Stephen Fry is the most talented reader I have encountered. The book, of course, is a classic. Fry's narration makes this a most enjoyable listen.

    When Rosemary Barton dies from drinking a cyanide-laced glass of champagne at her own birthday party, the coroner's verdict is suicide, but her husband suspects murder. In an effort to trap the murderer, her husband calls the original group together again on the anniversary of Rosemary's death. There, another in the group keels over dead, again the victim of cyanide in the champagne. This is Christie at her nefarious best.

    I am a fan of Agatha Christie's mysteries for light reading, when I'm too tired to think and just want to be amused. This is one of my favorites.
