    The delectable Phryne Fisher has been invited to the Last Best party of 1928. When three of the guests are kidnapped, Phryne finds she must puzzle her way through the scavenger hunt clues to retrieve the hostages. This is another sparkling mystery from Australia's Queen of Crime, Kerry Greenwood.

    Would you listen to Murder in the Dark again? Why?

    I wouldn't listen again as I found the pace of the narration and the character accents not to my taste. I'm very familiar with the book and enjoy the tv series too so I found a disconnect between those and this reader.


    How could the performance have been better?

    More variety in the pace and if someone is going to sing lyrics I'd prefer them to be more polished. I realise from other reviews that this is a popular reader so I'm in the minority but I will stick to reading the books I think as I have to work quite hard to prevent the reader spoiling my enjoyment of the story.

    The Mysterious Affair at Styles introduces Hercule Poirot, mystery fiction's greatest detective. Dapper, brilliant Monsieur Poirot, retired as the Chief of Belgian Police, is summoned to a magnificent English country estate to solve a murder. The victim: a wealthy heiress. The suspects: her fortune-hunting husband, her jealous relatives, even her hired companion. The solution: a deadly scheme that is revealed by the master detective himself.

    Adrian says: "Fantastic - Suchet is the best"
    "Agatha and David together..couldn't get any better"

    What made the experience of listening to The Mysterious Affair at Styles the most enjoyable?

    The reader is so convincing in the narration that I almost forget who is reading to me and I am just carried away by the story.


    What about David Suchet’s performance did you like?

    He has the ability to disappear into the story and in my mind I could see the story and forget the reader. I don't think it would matter what he read it would be easy to listen to and when he reads this material, which must be so familiar, it is seamless.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I would be tempted to pay for David's narration even if he was reading a timetable.
