    When Jane Marple comes up from the country for a holiday in London, she finds what she's looking for at Bertram's: a restored London hotel with traditional decor, impeccable service - and an unmistakable atmosphere of danger behind the highly polished veneer. Yet not even Miss Marple can foresee the violent chain of events set in motion when an eccentric guest makes his way to the airport on the wrong day....

    I enjoyed the twists and turns, and the intricate plot lines. I like the stories where Christie developes her characters to this extent. One of the 'kinder, gentler' mysteries.

    It is World War II, and while the RAF struggles to keep the Luftwaffe at bay, Britain faces an even more sinister threat from "the enemy within" - Nazis posing as ordinary citizens. With pressure mounting, the intelligence service appoints two unlikely spies, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. Their mission: to seek out a man and a woman from among the colorful guests at Sans Souci, a seaside hotel. But this assignment is no stroll along the promenade - N and M have just murdered Britain's finest agent and no one at all can be trusted....

    Story

    The Tommy and Tuppence books are refreshing and fun. The interplay between the two is quite fun. Tuppence has spunk and Tommy is self depreciating. The story line is, of course, similar to AC's other stories, a whodunit, but fun with these two.

    Most murder stories have it all wrong, as they start with the murder itself. The story truly begins long before, with actions that seem insignificant and unrelated, but all lead toward the zero point-murder. A dashing tennis player named Neville Strange, his current stylish wife, his not-so-stylish ex-wife, plus a distant relative and a few others find their way to a house party. When a murder occurs, Superintendent Battle is nearby and called on to help solve the case. But is the information on hand enough to go by?

    Jane Marple goes to stay with her old, and rather frail, friend Carrie-Louise at her sprawling Victorian Gothic mansion. It is not only a family home but also a rehabilitation center for delinquent boys, and she soon begins to realize that all is not well there. Then an attempt is made on the life of Carrie-Louise's husband, her step-son is shot to death, and someone tries to poison Carrie-Louise herself. Can Marple protect her friend and help the police unmask a brutal, and possibly deranged, killer?

    Story

    I very much enjoy Joan Hickson's narration. I like hearing her very aged voice, and her slight lisp. She makes me feel like I am in the story - maybe because hers is not the perfect, modern, expected voice.
    The story is one of my favorites. I enjoyed the varied characters, most of whom Christie made me like! And the outcome was not obvious to me. A fun listen, and re-listen.

    Sophia Leonides and Charles Hayward fall in love in Egypt during World War II, and vow to meet up again in England. After the war ends, Charles fears their reunion may be interrupted when he sees an obituary for Sophia's grandfather, Aristide, in the newspaper. The death turns out to be anything but ordinary - the rich old man's demise is mired in mysterious circumstances.

    Story
    If you could sum up Crooked House in three words, what would they be?

    Characters well developed


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was fun to get to know all the people, and just keep guessing 'who done it.'


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

    I thoroughly enjoy Hugh Fraser's narrations.


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

    The twist at the end is a bit sad, and deep.
