Summary

When Miss Marple comes up from the country for a holiday in London, she finds what she's looking for at Bertram's Hotel: traditional decor, impeccable service, and an unmistakable atmosphere of danger behind the highly polished veneer. Yet, not even Miss Marple can foresee the violent chain of events set in motion when an eccentric guest makes his way to the airport on the wrong day.

Pleasent listen

Stephanie Cole is a good substitute for Joan Hickson. The story is well read. It's a comfortable, easy listen.

Agatha Christie Always Pleases

As with every Agatha Christie, this one features a couple of breakneck twists that keep you guessing to the very end. My only complaint would be there was something of a lack of closure as the "bad guy" wasn't "caught" in the usual way. For all that though, still a good listen.

This was my first time listening to this narrator, and I am more used to Joan Hickson's somewhat more "age-appropriate" voice for Miss Marple. Notwithstanding, Ms. Cole did a good job with the range of voices, and made for an enjoyable listen.
