Publisher's Summary

From one of our most beloved and renowned authors, here is a new edition of this classic masterpiece of mystery and romance.
Dany Ashton is invited to vacation at her stepfather's house in Zanzibar, but even before her airplane takes off there is a stolen passport, a midnight intruder - and murder. In Zanizbar, the family house is Kivulimi, the mysterious "House of Shade", where Dany and the rest of the guests learn that one of them is a desperate killer. The air of freedom and nonchalance that opened the house party fades into growing terror, as the threat of futher violence flowers in the scented air of Zanzibar.
Richly evocative, Death in Zanzibar will charm longtime fans and introduce new ones to this celebrated writer.

Any additional comments?

I'd read this book and some of the other MM Kaye mysteries years ago. This one was a favorite. They are dated but that's part of the charm. This was the third of these mystery I've listened and the performance is disappointing. The characters are voiced as though it was a melodrama, the manly-men are brusque, loud, abrasive and the women shrill. Dani the young heroine comes off as a whinny nincompoop. If you like this type of story try Death in Cyprus instead.

Bad performance

Why is it that they cannot find narrators to match the book! This is a lovely little mystery (a bit dated but still a fun book) but the narration ruined it for me. An American obviously trying on an English accent...and not done at all well! I was able to complete the listen but only because I wanted to hear how it ended. Otherwise a waste of time.
