Not perhaps Christie's best, being the earliest of the Miss Marple mysteries, but the puzzle is neatly constructed, and Joan HIckson is the perfect narrator - not simply because she IS Miss Marple, but because she can handle the range of voices, characters and scenes with extraordinary effectiveness

Loved the audio book. Joan Hickson is the best story teller ever and she pulls us into the mystery and entangling us in the action.
The fluffy old village cat shows her claws in this wonderful village mystery. Beautifully read by the incomparable Joan Hickson; you get a lovely sense of the cosy village atmosphere, and she gives Miss Marple just the right degree of deceptive vagueness when she finally unveils the solution to the baffled police force.

A Classic Agatha Christie story with the wonderful narration from the consumate Miss Marple, Joan Hickson. If you want an escape from the every day drudgery then this is a must. Thoroughly recommended.

Joan Hickson does not pretend to be other characters but her reading makes it believable.
Although Joan Hickson's narration was beautiful, it was confusing that she was reading in the first person of a male character. It did my head in. I kept thinking SHE was Miss Marple. Didn't work for me - and the story itself was one of AC's worst.
