Summary

Tommy and Tuppence Beresford have just become the proud owners of an old house in an English village. Along with the property, they have inherited some worthless bric-a-brac, including a collection of antique books. While rustling through a copy of The Black Arrow, Tuppence comes upon a series of apparently random underlinings. However, when she writes down the letters, they spell out a very disturbing message: M a r y�J o r d a n�d i d�n o t�d i e�n a t u r a l l y.

A must read for all mystery fans

Tommy and Tuppence at their best, on a par with N or M. An interesting story line which you need to follow to get all the clues that the Beresfords find. Extremely well read by Hugh Fraser, absolutely spot on with all the characters. I have listened to this four times now and still find it highly enjoyable. I really recommend this.

not Agatha's best story<br />

the performance as usual is superb, but how the story is wrapped up is not at all successful or satisfying. if you have heard everything else by Agatha buy, if not try another book.

just too old

I am a great agatha christie however this one was just too old on many levels..constant conversation between the husband and wife sleuths..and in the end there was no point trying to work out 'who dun it' as agatha just introduced a random person in the end who was the murderer...very hard to stay involved
