    In seiner Hörbuch-Reihe "Verfilmt von Alfred Hitchcock" stellt Jens Wawrczeck sie vor: Die mörderisch guten Romane und Stories hinter den Filmen. Viele von ihnen sind heute kaum noch bekannt - zu Unrecht. "Klippen des Todes" liefert den jüngsten Beweis. 1937 verfilmte Hitchcock das Buch von Josephine Tey unter dem Titel "Jung und unschuldig". Jetzt liegt die Hörbuchfassung vor, gelesen von Jens Wawrczeck. Ein fulminantes Verwirrspiel um einen toten Filmstar, falsche Verdächtige und fast richtige Sterndeutung.
