Publisher's Summary

It's seven in the morning. The Bantrys wake to find the body of a young woman in their library. She is wearing evening dress and heavy make-up, which is now smeared across her cheeks. But who is she? How did she get there? And what is the connection with another dead girl, whose charred remains are later discovered in an abandoned quarry?

Agatha Christie as ingenious as ever. Great plot and keeps the mind ticking. The book is very well read too.

Stephanie Cole narrates this beautifully.

Would you listen to The Body in the Library again? Why?

Absolutely. All Agatha Christie novels are brilliant in my opinion. It flowed easily and kept me interested all the way through. There is humour in this book you don't expect.

What other book might you compare The Body in the Library to, and why?

Any other Agatha Christie, Miss Marple novel. All brilliant.

What does Stephanie Cole bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Stephanie Cole was born to narrate these novels, her voice and timing was immaculate.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to drift off to sleep and find audible great at bedtime but this was so good I listened until the early hours.

Any additional comments?

Some narrators voices are quite jarring and put me off buying the novel on audible but Stephanie Cole has now become a firm favourite. Enjoyed this and will listen to again.
