Man in the Brown Suit & 4:50 From Paddington
- By: Agatha Christie
- Narrated by: Emilia Fox, Joan Hickson
- Length: 15 hrs and 7 mins
Romance, adventure, and train travel can all be a little bit dangerous, especially in the hands of Agatha Christie. The Man in the Brown Suit: 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. 4:50 From Paddington: For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman's throat....

As others have said the sound quality of 4:50 from Paddington is poor. I found it difficult to understand the narrator, due to a combination of her thick British accent and the recording equipment. In fact, it sounded like she was in her living room reading into a tape recorder.
I found both stories delighful and well-written--both were full of the usual Agatha Christie wit, humor, and intrigue.
