Publisher's Summary

Twenty-year-old Amanda Derrington is on an extended cruise with her uncle when she decides to make a short trip to the sun-washed island of Cyprus. But even before the ship arrives in the port, there is a suspicious death. Once the passengers reach the island, it soon becomes clear that the death was in fact an act of murder. What Amanda had meant to be a pleasant excursion quickly takes a turn for the worse in this classic novel of suspense and romance by one of our most celebrated writers.

Timeless story, great author

What a great summer read. I love a book that takes me away to an exotic location and another time. What makes this book great is how well it is written. It is romantic and suspenseful without being cheesy. This book is well narrated. The voice fits the book. Audible has several other M.M. Kaye novels available but sadly the narration choices are poor on several of them. It's a real disappointment. The wrong choice of narrator really ruins a book for me. So if you enjoy this book and want to try another in the "death" series, I recommend listening to the sample first.

The Best Yet!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would. This was the best of the A Death In series so far. The story is a favorite and the reader was very good. I hope audible will produce the other two books. Death In The Andamans is the best of the lot with A Death In Kenya a close second.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved every character in this story. The old lady who wore the eccentric clothing might be my fave.

Have you listened to any of Julia Farhat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. She has a beautiful voice. I like hearing her read. It's too bad she didn't read all of them.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were a few parts that made me snicker a bit. It was just a fun read. M M Kaye has the ability to take you to all those exotic locales and make you feel as if you are there, and to a period in time that seems better than ours somehow. I will read anything she's written. These mysteries represent her wonderful writing without a huge investment of 700 pages or so.

Great story spoilt by poor choice of narrator

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I have always loved this story and read it several times. I was delighted when I found it on Audible and immediately purchased it but what a disappointment.

In an audio version the voice of the narrator is crucial to setting the scene and characters.
I searched all the libraries to find old versions of M M Kaye's Death in… stories read by Virginia McKenna who has the classic British BBC voice this wonderful classic story needs. Julia Farhal is definitely the wrong choice. She talks too slowly and emphasises nearly all the words and sounds American trying to do a Brit accent and is so irritating it is spoiling the story. I'm not sure I can even finish listening to it.

How could the performance have been better?

Re issue the Virginia McKenna narrated versions or at least choose another real English actress like Jan Francis with a light BBC accent.

Was Death in Cyprus worth the listening time?

I found the narrators accent too grating to finish listening to one of my favourite stories.

Any additional comments?

Find and reissue the McKenna narrations. It would be well worth while. I will not buy any of the others in this series by other voices.
