Publisher's Summary

Another title in the ever popular Agatha Christie series. The suave and debonair Colonel Race must solve a question, not of ‘accidental death or suicide’, but ‘murder or double murder’. Pretty, young Anne came to London looking for adventure. In fact, adventure comes looking for her – and finds her immediately at Hyde Park Corner tube station. Anne is present on the platform when a thin man, reeking of mothballs, loses his balance and is electrocuted on the rails. The Scotland Yard verdict is accidental death. But Anne is not satisfied. After all, who was the man in the brown suit who examined the body? And why did he race off, leaving a cryptic message behind: ‘17-122 Kilmorden Castle’?

    Story
    "Wild romance and mysteries"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Man in the Brown Suit to be better than the print version?

    Definitly Yes! Emilia Fox smooth voice, wit and underlying humor makes you actually be on board of the ship and Africa.


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

    Till the very end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's too hard to pick one out.


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

    When Anne arrives in London to move in with her father's solicitor and his wife, she makes herself less attractive, so that the wife can feel herself a little bit more relax.


    Any additional comments?

    For anyone who would like to hear a fun, mysterious and romantic thriller, you are not going to be disappointed with the "Men in the brown suit".

    Story
    "not one of her best"

    As an unabashed Christie fan, I still have to warn you: this is definitely not one of her best. It's romance over mystery, third rate writing over detective suspense. An ok read, but only if you've read the others and are in withdrawal :)

    "A great story!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I quite like the story as it is. However I thought it was a little slow starting but built up nicely.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the mix of romance and mystery in this story.


    Which character – as performed by Emilia Fox – was your favourite?

    I liked the main character, Anne Beddingfield. I thought Emilia Fox did an excellent job portraying this passionate young adventurer.
