Publisher's Summary

Adrian Gray was born in May 1862 and met his death through violence, at the hands of one of his own children, at Christmas, 1931.

Thus begins a classic crime novel published in 1933, a riveting portrait of the psychology of a murderer.

Each December, Adrian Gray invites his extended family to stay at his lonely house, King's Poplars. None of Gray's six surviving children is fond of him; several have cause to wish him dead. The family gathers on Christmas Eve - and by the following morning, their wish has been granted.

This fascinating and unusual audiobook tells the story of what happened that dark Christmas night - and what the murderer did next.

Narrator spoils the story

This book was spoiled right from the beginning by the narrator speaking so fast, I was unable to keep up with him.
I could not concentrate, hence spoiling the story for me, even when I adjusted the speed.
