Publisher's Summary

Gerry Wade had proved himself to be a champion sleeper, so the other houseguests decided to play a practical joke on him. Eight alarm clocks were set to go off, one after the other, starting at 6:30 a.m. But when morning arrived, one clock was missing and the prank then backfired, with tragic consequences.
For Jimmy Thesiger in particular, the words "Seven Dials" were to take on a new and chilling significance....

Funny and a Good Story

One of Christie's funniest books that flies along. Great performance by the reader. Top notch!

Stunning ending

I couldn't believe the ending...never had clue. This was an enjoyable story, and the tie-in to The Secret of Chimneys was an added pleasure.

I had to warm up to the narrator and would hesitate to buy an audiobook with her as the reader again. She has a nasal, high-pitched voice that is jarring to the ear. Diana Bishop (Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver series) has a cultured, smooth voice that would be better suited to classic British country house mysteries.
