"A Kiwi Christie"
A highly enjoyable murder mystery told with flair by James Saxon, who adopts a number of comic accents that really adds to the wit of the story. Marsh writes with similar lively character observation to Agatha Christie. So if you've read all of Christie's books, I highly recommend trying these by Marsh.
"Troy and Allen disappointment"
Disliked this performance so very much spoilt the book for me hated every moment - sorry should have returned it
