Publisher's summary

A blizzard has hit England. In the tiny village of Sittaford, on the fringes of Dartmoor, a party of six is gathered in Sittaford House, home of Captain Trevelyan. He has rented the house out for the winter and is staying in a nearby village.

As evening draws in, a seance is proposed. But it reveals more than they had anticipated - TREVELYAN DEAD, spells out the board. Slowly the table begins to rock again, spelling out the word M-U-R-D-E-R. Is it true? And who would kill a man who doesn’t have an enemy in the world?

John Moffatt and Stephen Tompkinson star in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of a classic from the Queen of Crime.

Very nice and suspenseful

This was a very good story and I liked the suspense in the story. The murderer was surprising and a little bit expected

Totally Enjoyable

The performances were superb! I knew the story, but the performances made it new and more enjoyable. Rarely do I listen to a book more than once; this will be the exception. I look forward to more full cast productions.

The Dramatization made you feel like you were listening to a movie.

Excellent dramatization. Great story telling by another lady other than Ms Marple. Very good mystery, well thought-out by Agatha Christie. I had not heard of this book, but it was up there with all the rest of Christie's winner's.

One of the best stand alone Christie stories

Entertaining and well performed full cast audio adaptation of Agatha Christie's book. As each mystery unfolds, it is easy to imagine you are really there experiencing it all.

A Storm, A Seance, and Murder

One of Dame Agatha's lesser known stories, this one is set in Dartmoor during a freezing winter storm. A mysterious message received during a seance leads to a suspicion that a murder has been committed and points to a weak-minded nephew. His ingenious and resourceful fiancee enlists an ambitious reporter to aid her in finding out the truth.
