Publisher's Summary

There's Rosemary, that's for remembrance. Published in 1945, Sparkling Cyanide is all about remembrance. It begins with six characters recalling the horrific death of Rosemary Barton, a beautiful but shallow young heiress poisoned by a cyanide-spiked glass of champagne whilst celebrating her birthday at a smart London restaurant. Rosemary haunts all six characters, each of them a suspect, throughout the story - and it's not until her killer is found and her ghost laid to rest that the group can move on, though they will never forget. With a distinguished cast including Peter Wight and Amanda Drew, this wonderfully entertaining production retains the thrill of Agatha Christie's clever, compulsive story.

Sparkling Cynide

Amanda Drew did a e2eeasonavle job of narrating this book, but I think I've been spoilt by listening to Hugh Fraser., Joan Hicks on & David Suchet.
The story was good and I've seen the television version but I still got the culprit wrong when will I learn it's the one you least expect does it I'll remember that in my next audio book, maybe then I'll get it righ
