Publisher's Summary

After the death of her husband, Dolly Bantry sold Gossington Hall to the former film star Marina Gregg and her husband. When the glamorous couple decide to throw a benefit party for the local hospital, the grounds are thronged with curious visitors, and for one of them, the day ends in tragedy.
As Marina is serving cocktails in the house, she is cornered by the excitable Heather Babcock, who chatters away about their former meeting about eleven years ago before spilling her daiquiri all over herself and Marina. Ever the gracious hostess, Marina offers her own untouched drink to Mrs Babcock - only to look on, horrified, as the lady dies in front of her.
It is up to Miss Marple to find out who was really meant to take the poison that killed poor Heather Babcock. Could it be that Marina Gregg was the intended victim? If so, Miss Marple’s task will not be an easy one, for the lady had an unusually large number of enemies...
Agatha Christie’s perplexing mystery is dramatised with a full cast, including Ian Lavender, Gayle Hunnicutt, and James Laurenson, with June Whitfield as the sharp-witted spinster sleuth.

Absolutely Brilliant Christies

This is Christie at her best. Twists & turns will keep you gripped throughout this enthralling tale of several 'murders' who is doing these
ghastly acts. Just when you think it might be ... another bites
the dust. Absolutely gripping.

A full cast production with excellent sound track taking you into the
world of mystery & murder the Christie way. The whole story is will keep you wanting more, so for me, there are no overly special sections it is all
brilliant.

I have all the Agatha Christie audible performances & look out for more. You will listen to this play over & over & enjoy it as much as you
did on the first listen.
