Marina's frozen expression suggested she had witnessed something horrific. But, while others searched for material evidence, Jane Marple conducted a very different investigation: into human nature.

"The pieces finally drop into place with a satisfying click." (Times Literary Supplement)
Avid mystery reader, huge Agatha Christie fan.
Another excellent Agatha Christie mystery, ably read by Joan Hickson. The to-be-expected whiplash moment is present, as just when you think you have it all solved, she turns everything on its head.
Joan Hickson delivers another solid performance, bringing her vocal range and subtlety to bear on a rather wide cast of characters. She manages to convey character with the pitch and pace she gives to the various members of the "cast", and makes each of them unique.
Very pleased with this purchase, always an excellent combination, this narrator and author.
"Exquisite narration for an exquisite tale"
Joan Hickson is THE Miss Marple - her ability with spoken dialogue is fabulous. Id found the recording of her version of Nemesis slightly hard to hear; it was also wonderful but some of the sounds were a bit fuzzy and hard to make out. Not so with this. It was clear as a bell!
"Another excellent Crime Story"
Agatha knows intrege and Joan keeps the listener listening both a credit to their profession
"Mirror cracked from side to side "
Excellent, the story tells your past never stays in the past, famous actress retires, to St Mary Mead, they hold a fete, to meet the local community St John's Ambulance service, a special group are invited in, one lady meets the actress, and tells a story then 5 minutes later , she's dead!!!!! be prepared for the twists
Good plot, as usual, with a touch of glamour and a shiver down the spine.
