Publisher's Summary

Agatha Christie’s classic thriller. Features the recurring character Colonel Race from Death on the Nile, Cards on the Table and The Man in the Brown Suit.
Six people sit down to dinner at a table laid for seven. In front of the empty place is a sprig of rosemary – in solemn memory of Rosemary Barton who died at the same table exactly one year previously. No one present on that fateful night would ever forget the woman’s face, contorted beyond recognition – or what they remembered about her astonishing life.

Would you listen to Sparkling Cyanide again? Why?

This is a "keeper" There are at least two other versions both of which I have and I never tire of this story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sparkling Cyanide?

As ever with Christie the moment the "rogue" is revealed, she always catches me out!

Which character – as performed by Hugh Fraser – was your favourite?

Iris Marle - the "heroin" although a hard choice, he is very good at them all!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Another sparkling mystery by the great Ms Christie.
