Decent Christie ruined by narrator

I do hope that Emilia Fox won't be let loose on any more audiobooks. Her reading is wooden, and when she attempted any accent I was praying for it to stop. I'm assuming that the only reason she was chosen was that she can read in an RP accent. It's a shame, because this is one of Agatha Christie's more decent non- Poirot or Marple stories.

1920s early story

I enjoy this early Agatha Christie story for it's twists and turns but I really prefer the later stories, as they don't tend to be quite so full of 'jolly young things'. It is however still worth a listen.
