Rex Fortescue, king of a financial empire, was sipping tea in his "counting house" when he suffered an agonizing and sudden death. On later inspection, the pockets of the deceased were found to contain traces of cereals.

Another Brilliant Marple Mystery Performance!
I would absolutely listen to "Pocket Full of Rye" again!!! It is a brilliantly done story with great characters and a wonderful performance!
I absolutely loved Inspector Neil! He is shrewd and calculating but just not quite up to Miss Marple's train of thinking - although wise enough to know that he needs her as a collaborator.
I have listened to two other performances by Richard E. Grant and I can honestly say that they are all brilliant. The first was my favorite "The Moving Finger" but that was simply because I liked Christie's characters there better. As far as the performance of this work, it's fantastic! He really makes the characters come to life. Often, so many performers don't understand the author and their humor or particular characters and it makes the book a droll and uninteresting. NOT SO HERE! I think that Mr. Grant genuinely understands the intentions of Christie in her characters and portrays them wonderfully. I would listen to any other Agatha Christie novel that he performs, simply because I know I will have an enjoyable work to listen to.
"Four and twenty blackbirds say you're about to die"
"Even Mother Goose can kill"
A must read for all book lovers, but especially mystery lovers and Agatha Christie enthusiasts!
I put off this book for too long
You won't be steered wrong by a tome read by Richard E Grant. His narration
could make the phone book sound good.
