Publisher's Summary

A classic Marple mystery, read by the inimitable Richard E. Grant.
'Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe,' declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, 'would be doing the world at large a service!'It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later. From seven potential murderers, Miss Marple must seek out the suspect who has both motive and opportunity.

I am working my way through the Agatha Christie titles on Audible. Richard E Grant's performance is superb. Great pace and characterisation. A real period piece of a performance. Top of my list of audiobooks so far.

The vicar. Not nearly as naive as you might first think.

Absolutely.


Any additional comments?

Enjoyable, never dull.
