A blizzard has hit England. In the tiny village of Sittaford, on the fringes of Dartmoor, a party of six is gathered in Sittaford House, home of Captain Trevelyan. He has rented the house out for the winter and is staying in a nearby village.
As evening draws in, a seance is proposed. But it reveals more than they had anticipated - TREVELYAN DEAD, spells out the board. Slowly the table begins to rock again, spelling out the word M-U-R-D-E-R. Is it true? And who would kill a man who doesn’t have an enemy in the world?
John Moffatt and Stephen Tompkinson star in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of a classic from the Queen of Crime.

Look for this title to pop up on sale and grab it at discount! The cast does credit to small-town British evils, with even pacing and careful plot development. A murder occurs in wintry conditions, and possible culprits abound!
Yes. I have listened to it several times. It is a clever mystery.
The table turning.
All the voices were distinct and fit the characters. I could visualize the scenes.
Yes, every time.
Emily is a plucky heroine. I liked her interactions with the other characters. Good non-series short story.
"Great for a winter's evening"
The usual Agatha Chrisite - easy to listen to, excellent characters - just right! The BBC radio collection are well worth space on the shelf.
