In a remote house in the middle of Dartmoor, six shadowy figures huddle around a table for a seance. Tension rises as the spirits spell out a chilling message: "Captain Trevelyan...dead...murder." Is this black magic or simply a macabre joke? The only way to be certain is to locate Captain Trevelyan. Unfortunately, his home is six miles away and, with snowdrifts blocking the roads, someone will have to make the journey on foot....

If you could sum up The Sittaford Mystery in three words, what would they be?

A good story but I feel that without the snowstorm it wouldn't have been as enjoyable.

What other book might you compare The Sittaford Mystery to and why?

Can't think of another story, but whatever it is it must have snow in it.

What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

I've listened to many of Hugh Fraser's peformance and in The Sittaford Mystery he continues to be excellent.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A snowy day in Sittaford town.

Any additional comments?
