Publisher's Summary

There's Rosemary, that's for remembrance. Published in 1945, Sparkling Cyanide is all about remembrance. It begins with six characters recalling the horrific death of Rosemary Barton, a beautiful but shallow young heiress poisoned by a cyanide-spiked glass of champagne whilst celebrating her birthday at a smart London restaurant. Rosemary haunts all six characters, each of them a suspect, throughout the story - and it's not until her killer is found and her ghost laid to rest that the group can move on, though they will never forget. With a distinguished cast including Peter Wight and Amanda Drew, this wonderfully entertaining production retains the thrill of Agatha Christie's clever, compulsive story.

    Story
    "Good performance/Typical Christie plot"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    BBC productions always rate highly, especially on sale.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most interesting is the mathematical possibilities between four couples...

    Least interesting is why points of view are limited until the denouement...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Where the poisoning occurs..."Black Coffee" is another example.


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

    My disappointment was not in the performances, but in the plot, which was not predictable due to hidden information...A second listening may prove me wrong...


    Any additional comments?

    Still a good buy and proof that troupe performances make for good entertainment!

    "Great read/listen"

    Very enjoyable! engaging story and character development. you may discover the culprit early on, but the reason why it was done is well hidden until the end of the story. I can recommend this book heartily !

    "Sparkling Cynide "

    Amanda Drew did a e2eeasonavle job of narrating this book, but I think I've been spoilt by listening to Hugh Fraser., Joan Hicks on & David Suchet.
    The story was good and I've seen the television version but I still got the culprit wrong when will I learn it's the one you least expect does it I'll remember that in my next audio book, maybe then I'll get it righ
