Publisher's Summary

Gerry Wade had proved himself to be a champion sleeper, so the other houseguests decided to play a practical joke on him. Eight alarm clocks were set to go off, one after the other, starting at 6:30 a.m. But when morning arrived, one clock was missing and the prank then backfired, with tragic consequences.

For Jimmy Thesiger in particular, the words "Seven Dials" were to take on a new and chilling significance....

    "Stunning ending"

    I couldn't believe the ending...never had clue. This was an enjoyable story, and the tie-in to The Secret of Chimneys was an added pleasure.

    I had to warm up to the narrator and would hesitate to buy an audiobook with her as the reader again. She has a nasal, high-pitched voice that is jarring to the ear. Diana Bishop (Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver series) has a cultured, smooth voice that would be better suited to classic British country house mysteries.

    "Funny and a Good Story"

    One of Christie's funniest books that flies along. Great performance by the reader. Top notch!

    Story
    "Audio book could not keep my interest"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The beginning of the book is fine but after about an hour into it, I started to lose interest and could not figure what was supposed to be going on. It was not until the denouement at the end, that I got a glimpse of what the plot of the story was.


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

    Agatha Christie is one of my fave authors of all times, but this book was dull. The characters weren't interesting.


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

    None of them.


    Did The Seven Dials Mystery inspire you to do anything?

    Take a nap.


    Any additional comments?

    The Seven Dials Mystery is supposed to be a pseudo-sequel to the Secret of Chimneys, to me, it is not. Yes, there are some four repeat characters and a murder takes place at Chimneys in both books, but that is it, It is not a continuation of Chimenys at all.
