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.

Excellance!

If you could sum up The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side (Dramatised) in three words, what would they be?

Just plain perfection.

What other book might you compare The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side (Dramatised) to and why?

Maybe another agatha christie book. The only book that could even compare is another of her works. But possible Sherlock holmes would be a good choice too.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Voices that bring the story to life that usually can't happen as easily when reading the book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the murder was solved.

Fabulous dramatization

I adore Agatha Christie and this book is no exception. The audio dramatization is great and the whole team of narrators did this work justice. I was enthralled and loved every second.

ANOTHER SUPERB CHRISTIE PRODUCTION

You cannot beat these full cast Agatha Christie productions for sheer enthralling entertainment. June Whitfield (not of my taste as an actress) yet June pulls it all of with aplomb as the grey haired curly topped knitting sleuth who cannot resist a murder. The actors are bring all of these alive where believe in them! I have had the full sets for years and never tire of listening to them, they bring such joy.
