Something sinister lurks beneath the polished veneer.

Publisher's Summary

Miss Marple, Agatha Christie’s deceptively mild spinster sleuth, is being treated to a few days’ holiday by her niece, staying at Bertram’s Hotel, a dignified, unostentatious establishment tucked away in a back street of busy Mayfair.

Here is a place where sedate upper class ladies, retired military gentlemen and the higher echelons of the clergy can indulge in the comforts of a bygone age. But Miss Marple begins to feel uneasy. Something sinister lurks beneath the polished veneer. Why are so many major crimes associated in some way with the hotel or somehow implicate eminently respectable people staying there?

June Whitfield stars as Miss Marple in this BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of a classic brain-teaser from the Queen of Crime.

    I am an avid reader and listener. I listen to a lot of mystery novels, and especially love the "cozies". I also like most non-fiction!

    "Excellent Dramatized Mystery from the BBC"

    I accidentally stumbled upon "dramatised" audio books, and have fallen in love with them. They are short (often less than two hours); and fully acted out. And if it is a BBC production, then you get a full cast of excellent (known!) actors.

    I love Miss Marple, and frequently buy a dramatised production for a quiet, soothing listen. This one was purchased for a similar reason - restless with insomnia, needing a good relaxing listen, I bought At Bertram's Hotel.

    The performance, of course, was superb. June Whitfield, who played Miss Marple in the BBC TV Series, is irreproachable as Miss Marple. The other characters are excellent as well.

    I did have an issue with the plausibility of the story, and the later Miss Marple's are not my favourites - but I did thoroughly enjoy the book (except when the young female (?) began screaming hysterically and disturbed my peace!).

    I will be buying more BBC dramatised books, for certain, as I've barely scratched the surface of the Agatha Christie collection!!

    "I Adore A Story Set In A Hotel!"
    What did you like most about At Bertram's Hotel (Dramatised)?

    I enjoyed the setting the most and that it was a dramatization. I love when a book is set somewhere like a hotel, especially if it is an old hotel . The description was wonderful and very easy to picture it as the author saw it. I love listening to dramatization , it brings all the characters and story to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I did not have a favourite , I enjoyed them all ! Agatha Christie writes interesting characters so you can't help loving each one of them, faults and all!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I enjoyed Miss Marple's arrival at the hotel, hearing the description of what the hotel was like and the other guests that were staying there .


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wanted to go straight back to the beginning and read it all over again. It made me smile.


    Any additional comments?

    Go get it folks!
