Publisher's Summary

As Jane Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine, she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise, nothing ever happened. Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier's yarn about a strange coincidence. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major's attention wandered. He never did finished the story.


What the Critics Say

"Liveliness...infectious zest...as good as anything Miss Christie has done." ( Observer)
"Throws off the false clues and misleading events as only a master of the art can do." ( New York Times)

Addictive and beautifully narrated.

Joan Hickson does a marvellous job voicing all the characters and her pronunciation is deliciously contemporaneous. Agatha Christie's masterful weaving and subsequent unravelling of the plot leads one by the nose till the end. Marvellous!
