Publisher's Summary

Agatha Christie's shocking courtroom drama, read on audio by her grandson, Mathew Prichard.
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?

a treat for Christie fans

A classic Christie short story, pleasantly read by her grandson. Includes an excerpt from her autobiography. The narrator signed off with "Thank you for listening" and I really wanted to shake his hand and say "Thank you for reading!" I think any fan of classic mysteries will love the story and Christie fans in particular should enjoy the recording.

Overall A good story but low enjoyment due to a very flat and uninspired narration.
