      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: In this Christie mystery, sleuth and heroine Miss Marple finds herself vacationing at a tropical resort full of intriguing characters. She is suddenly plunged into a mystery that rapidly escalates into a double murder. This multi-voiced production, complete with musical transitions and background sound effects, uses different readers for each part (20 in all), and all are equally successful renditions. June Whitfield, playing Miss Marple, sounds very much the elderly spinster, while George A. Cooper does a marvelous interpretation of the irascible old millionaire, Mr Rafiel. More than just an abridgment, this audio dramatization is creative and entertaining. J.J.F. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine
