Publisher's Summary

A blinding snowstorm - and a homicidal maniac - traps a small party of friends in an isolated estate. Out of this deceptively simple setup, Agatha Christie fashioned one of her most ingenious puzzlers, which in turn would provide the basis for The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in history.
From this classic title novella to the deliciously clever gems on its tail (solved to perfection by Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple), this rare collection of murder most foul showcases Christie at her inventive best, proving her reputation as "the champion deceiver of our time" (New York Times).

All together now!

This compilation brought together some of my favourite Agatha Christie stories and narrators. The title track was both scary and mysterious, and the setting of a snowbound house with a group of strangers was remarkably well done.

I thoroughly enjoyed the range of narrators, Joan Hickson and David Suchet never fail to please, and Hugh Fraser brought a different sound to Poirot but not an unpleasant one.

All in all, a thoroughly satisfying listen!

Joan Hickson IS Miss Marple!

All of the stories are wonderful. Even after I know the ending, I can read, listen and watch anything by Agatha Christie over and over again!

Joan Hickson is the definitive Miss Marple and always a treasure!
