Publisher's Summary

A classic Marple mystery, read by Emilia Fox.
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.

Wonderful classic.

No one writes a murder better than Christie. Excellent narration by Emilia Fox. Great listen.

Horribly acted

For such a good actress Emilia Fox is atrocious at all accents and voices. All the male characters have raspy voices, the Americans are shrill, the Latinos are ridiculously lisping and the local Carribbean accents are so slow and sing song (occasionally breaking into Irish!) that I had to skip sections all together.

The story is good but probably the most easily guessed plot of all the Christie that I've read.
