Publisher's Summary

Miranda Brand is visiting Germany for what is supposed to be a month's vacation. But from the moment that Brigadier Brindley relates the story about a fortune in lost diamonds - a story in which Miranda herself figures in an unusual way - the vacation atmosphere becomes transformed into something more ominous. And when murder strikes on the night train to Berlin, Miranda finds herself unwillingly involved in a complex chain of events that will soon throw her own life into peril. Set against a background of war-scarred Berlin in the early 1950s, Death in Berlin is a consummate mystery from one of the finest storytellers of our time.

    "Why these narrators"

    Why oh why have American actors been employed to read M M Kaye's quintessentially English books. Yes they are all set overseas, but the heroines are all Brits or raised there yet for some reason the publisher has chosen to allow the bastardisation of their accents. It's a travesty of what they could have been and of what the original recordings were. I would have bought this whole set and the two great Indian sagas, but for most of them I can't even get through the sample without cringing. My advice - if you ever heard the old recordings by Virginia McKenna don't even try these - it's traumatising!

    "Good story"
    What made the experience of listening to Death in Berlin the most enjoyable?

    the story itself made it enjoyable. The reader was infinitely better than the reader of A Death In Kashmir.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The heroine of course


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The reader was good,but I'm still looking for that cultured British accent


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

    The dramatic ending in the old house


    Any additional comments?

    that is all

    "Poor narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No- the narration spoiled it for me.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I do not understand why it was felt necessary to have an American narrating when the characters were, in the main, British. Her pronounciation was poor and her attempts at a British accent ludicrous. I persevered until the end of the book but will not buy another audio book of M M Kaye's novels, I will just stick to the written word in future- which I know I will enjoy!

    "Totally the wrong reader"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The right accented reader


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Udall?

    Any English actor with the correct 1950's accent


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Fury at a very good period book being ruined by an awful American accent


    Any additional comments?

    Read the book before choosing the narrator
