A classic Agatha Christie short story, available individually for the first time in digital audio, performed by Christopher Lee.
When wealthy spinster Emily French is found murdered, suspicion falls to Leonard Vole, the man to whom she hastily bequeathed her riches before she died. Leonard assures the investigators that his wife, Romaine Heilger, can provide them with an alibi. However, when questioned, Romaine informs the police that Vole returned home late that night covered in blood.
During the trial, Ms French's housekeeper, Janet, gives damning evidence against Vole, but as Romaine's cross-examination begins, her motives come under scrutiny from the courtroom. One question remains: will justice out?
"The plots are so good that one marvels...most of them would have made a full length thriller." (Daily Mirror)

Lee-ly good narration
Fine Christie, setting well described
I enjoyed the characters, so I would say yes
I loved any scene with the lawyer in conversation, Lee's voice is a gem
The lawyer, by far
no tag line
Although the ending was guessed at it in no way spoilt the story. I think listening to Christopher Lee talking about shopping in Tesco would be fascinating, and in this book he excels at character and scence setting. Much fun
