Description

The Murder at the Vicarage is Agatha Christie's first mystery to feature the beloved investigator Miss Marple—as a dead body in a clergyman's study proves to the indomitable sleuth that no place, holy or otherwise, is a sanctuary from homicide.

Miss Marple encounters a compelling murder mystery in the sleepy little village of St. Mary Mead, where under the seemingly peaceful exterior of an English country village lurks intrigue, guilt, deception and death.Colonel Protheroe, local magistrate and overbearing land-owner is the most detested man in the village. Everyone—even in the vicar—wishes he were dead. And very soon he is—shot in the head in the vicar's own study. Faced with a surfeit of suspects, only the inscrutable Miss Marple can unravel the tangled web of clues that will lead to the unmasking of the killer.

      • content: Richard E. Grant introduces listeners to Reverend Clement, vicar of St. Mary Mead, and his neighbor, Miss Jane Marple. The weathered male voice narrating this first Miss Marple mystery may surprise some listeners, as later episodes are often told from the spinster sleuth's point of view. Grant does his best with the male characters, delivering the various accents that help listeners distinguish class and status in the English village. His women are less successful, and while Grant has the proper British formality and tone, the characters barely come alive. Christie fans will enjoy the audiobook's multiple plot diversions and this 1930 introduction of the author's enduring character. R.F.W. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
