'It's very easy to kill - so long as no one suspects you.' So says Miss Pinkerton when ex-policeman Luke Fitzwilliam meets her on a train. Luke doesn't take much notice of this little old lady's story about a serial killer on the loose in her village - until her predictions start to come true, when he feels compelled to check it out. Very soon the race is on to prevent any more murders...
Dramatised by Joy Wilkinson, and with a distinguished cast including Patrick Baladi, Lydia Leonard, Michael Cochrane and Marcia Warren, this is a gripping BBC Radio dramatisation of one of Agatha Christie's most ingenious detective stories.

I just bought this dramatisation last week and have already listened to it at least 3 times. I love the characters and actors as this has always been a favourite Agatha Christie story. I had not heard Michael Cochrane before but will be checking out more of his work.
I liked that for a change this story didn't include Poirot or Miss Marple and even though I knew the outcome the twists and turns as it went along took me with it.
My favourite scene is the final reveal of the mystery as I can remember the first time I read the book I was surprised at the outcome because it is so unexpected.
I really like the start of the story when the stage is set by Miss Pinkerton and the assumption that she is a bit batty is very well done. But then Luke changes his mind about her and decides to investigate due to the subsequent happenings, it is an engaging start.
I will be listening to and enjoying this audio book for years to come as the story is one of Agatha Christie's best and so well done.
