Get ready for another exciting BBC Drama audiobook adaptation of Agatha Christie’s thrilling whodunit- ‘Magnolia Blossom’. Compellingly brought to life by a full cast of distinguished acting talents, this mysterious tale from the BBC Radio Collection tells the story of Theodora Darrell, who runs away to Paris with her new lover, a business associate of her husband’s, in pursuit of a happy new life.
Yet there are forces at play that force her to return to England when she learns that her jilted husband could well be in serious danger. Is her decision to return prompted by her guilty conscience, or her heart?
First published in Agatha Christie’s exhilarating collection of short stories- ‘Problem at Pollensa Bay’, ‘Magnolia Blossom’ is a notable departure from the Queen of Crime’s usual style, incorporating more tender themes of romance and sentimentality into her usually taut narrative.
With a running time of just short of half an hour, this short dramatisation, available to download as an MP3 audiobook or as a CD, is the perfect departure for those looking for a quick hit of exciting, mid-afternoon escapism.
This gripping tale, revamped for radio by Mike Walker, stars the likes of Emilia Fox in a fast paced mystery that encompasses all of the tension and narrative power of Agatha Christie’s original.
