Publisher's Summary

With World War II at an end, Charles Hayward is finally free to marry the woman he loves, Sophia Leonides. However, she refuses - the unexplained death of her grandfather, wealthy businessman Aristide Leonides, draws her back to the suffocating environment of her family home. Charles follows, but his arrival coincides with the discovery that Aristide’s death was murder. The ensuing investigation drags Charles into the dark heart of the family, and its deadly secrets and dangers. Even if Charles escapes with his life, will he survive the corrosive effect of the family itself?

Loved it!

Where does Crooked House (Dramatised) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a dramatized version of the story, so if you're looking for the book -- it's not this one. but quickly add -- I enjoyed it immensely. I often listen to dramatized versions of Christie, Dickens, and other favorites when I am busy doing mindless work like laundry and cleaning. This one is a keeper, and what a surprised ending.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Crooked House (Dramatised)?

The end of course; shocking! The recording is punctuated with post WWII era music which I liked as well.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

These dramatized versions are second only to film.

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

The killer was a shock, and more than that -- the reasons given for their commission.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend for the long drive; very affordable entertainment in my view.
