Publisher's Summary

Tommy and Tuppence Beresford have just become the proud owners of an old house in an English village. Along with the property, they have inherited some worthless bric-a-brac, including a collection of antique books. While rustling through a copy of The Black Arrow, Tuppence comes upon a series of apparently random underlinings.

However, when she writes down the letters, they spell out a very disturbing message: "Mary Jordan did not die naturally." And 60 years after their first murder, Mary Jordan's enemies are still ready to kill....

    "Christie at her worst"

    Hugh Fraser did a stellar job of reading the most disappointing Christie novel I've encountered. I've enjoyed most of her books, so I was quite surprised. This should have been a short story but was padded out to novel length by annoying and irrelevant chit chat between Tommy and Tuppence. Even that sounds as if it could possibly be charming, but it is not, it is maddening. They find a clue and, instead of examining it, start a discussion on dinner or whether they had washed up yet...I wanted to pull my hair out. Small, insignificant details are discussed repeatedly.

    "Possibly my favorite of this series."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    After reading reviews, I almost missed out on this wonderful book. My favorite part of the whole series is Tommy and Tuppence's interactions with each other, and this book made me laugh a lot (though not as much as "Partners in Crime").
    I'm really sad that there aren't more books in the Tommy and Tuppence series, they became instant favorites. I will probably re-listen to these last two the most, because I love the matured relationship of these characters and old Albert.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tuppence. Her spunk, wit, and tenacity -among other things. :)


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I LOVE Hugh Frazer's performances. I would almost buy a book just to keep listening to him.


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

    I laughed a lot, especially at Tuppence's experiences with True Love and Matilda's surgery.

    "Boring"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I enjoy listening to Hugh Fraser but I didn't care for the story itself


    What could Agatha Christie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    not to my taste...that's not to say other Christie fans shouldn't give it a try

    "Dull reading."
    Would you try another book from Agatha Christie and/or Hugh Fraser?

    Christie can be simplistic, but the reading on this made it soporific. Much preferred Nadia May's reading of The Secret Adversary.
