Publisher's Summary

Designed to follow the new-look series of Miss Marple books for the 21st century. This edition is complete and unabridged and read by Miss Marple herself, Joan Hickson.
Miss Marple senses danger when she visits a friend living in a Victorian mansion which doubles as a rehabilitation centre for delinquents. Her fears are confirmed when a youth fires a revolver at the administrator, Lewis Serrocold. Neither is injured. But a mysterious visitor, Mr Gilbrandsen, is less fortunate - shot dead simultaneously in another part of the building.
Pure coincidence? Miss Marple thinks not, and vows to discover the real reason for Mr Gilbrandsen's visit.

Good story, weird narration

What did you like best about They Do It with Mirrors? What did you like least?

The story is excellent; good characters, good plot, really good writing.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Emilia Fox?

Probably not. She has a very peculiar style of reading - she makes half the characters talk so slowly that they sound completely stupid. The police inspector, for example, is supposed to be a pretty on-the-ball chap, but with Emilia Fox's reading, he sounds as though he barely knows how to speak, let along think. It's very disappointing.

Enjoyable but not the best Agatha Christie

Another solid Agatha Christie story and generally well performed by Emilia Fox - although occasionally her 'Male' voices (especially American) are a little strange. It is a good story but not one Agatha Christie's best, a bit of a 'pot boiler'.
