Description
In the sleepy little English country village of St Mary Mead, all is not as it seems. Under a seemingly peaceful exterior lurks intrigue, guilt, deception - and murder. Colonel Protheroe, local magistrate and overbearing landowner, is the most detested man in the village. Everyone, even the vicar, wishes he were dead. And very soon he is - shot in the head in the vicar's own study. A visiting artist confesses to the murder, but residents saw him elsewhere at the time the Colonel was shot. If he didn't do it, who did? Is he protecting the wife whom he loves? Faced with a surfeit of suspects, only the inscrutable Miss Marple can unravel the tangled web of clues. A trap is set, and Miss Marple's theory is put to the test when the true killer is finally unmasked. This full-cast dramatisation of Agatha Christie's very first Miss Marple mystery stars June Whitfield as the indomitable amateur detective, with Imelda Staunton and Nigel Davenport.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Narrator Ian Masters delivers vintage Christie with delightfully proper English accents. His portrayal of Miss Jane Marple, village spinster on the trail of a killer, is quintessential Christie; Marple's sharp intelligence is appropriately depicted as deceptive ordinariness. When the despised village vicar is found shot in the head, Masters delivers Marple's enthusiasm for gossip, while hiding her concern over the killer's identity. However, tension builds as Marple uncovers scandalous secrets that lead to someone with something to hide. Masters's dramatic range of voices brings each character to life for the listener. His delivery will delight Agatha Christie fans. A nice length for a short commute. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
