Publisher's Summary

As Jane Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine, she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise, nothing ever happened.Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier's yarn about a strange coincidence. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major's attention wandered. He never did finished the story.

Joan Hickson

Joan Hickson is my favorite narrator. She should be the one to narrate all of miss marple-books.

Addictive and beautifully narrated.

Joan Hickson does a marvellous job voicing all the characters and her pronunciation is deliciously contemporaneous. Agatha Christie's masterful weaving and subsequent unravelling of the plot leads one by the nose till the end. Marvellous!

Disappointing

Boring narration, she is hard to understand at times and a waste of money if an Agatha Christie fan.
