Publisher's Summary

Death in the Andamans is a masterpiece of mystery and romance from one of our most beloved authors. When a violent storm lashes the tiny Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal, Copper Randal barely manages a safe return to Government House. She does get back in one piece with her hostess, Valerie Masson, Val's fiancé, and handsome naval officer Nick Tarrent, but one of the islanders is unaccounted for when the boats return to harbor. Cut off from the mainland and confined to the shadowy, haunted guest quarters, Copper and the other visitors conclude that one of their number is a murderer. The killer must be found before the storm destroys all trace of any possible clues. In Death in the Andamans M.M. Kaye has created the perfect blend of exotic setting and expertly crafted whodunit that mark her as one of our greatest literary talents.

Very poor choice of reader

The strident American tones of Soneela Nankani completely wreck one of the best of M.M.Kaye's mystery books. I can only describe it as quite horrible and I wish I hadn't wasted a credit on this production. I'll stick to my old copy of Virginia McKenna on tape!

Very disappointing.

What disappointed you about Death in the Andamans?

Quite the wrong voice for this story. The main characters are English, with very "proper" BBC English accents, not American. Furthermore, the narrator seemed unable to inject expression in to her voice.


Would you be willing to try another book from M. M. Kaye? Why or why not?

Perhaps, if you choose your narrators more carefully.


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Soneela Nankani?

Jane Asher, Juliet Stevenson, Jan Francis.


What character would you cut from Death in the Andamans?

The characters are part of the story. You cannot cut them.
