The world’s bestselling author of all time, Agatha Christie, has written a story with a science fiction twist - one of only a few that is not centred on murder or detective work. During an interview back in 1956, Christie admitted she had a fascination for science fiction as evidenced in The Hound of Death, where she explores the dark side in this eerie tale of the occult. Now this eerie, unusual story is brought vividly to life on audiobooks on CD and MP3.
Cornwall is the setting for this story, as we meet an Englishman who gets tangled up in a web of mystery when he delves into the unexplained fable of a Belgian nun who takes refuge in a local village. Rumours in the village have it that Sister Angelique boasts of possessing supernatural powers, and many believe that she is to blame for the mysterious explosion of her convent when German soldiers stormed the building during the war. As the only survivor, there seems to be no other explanation. But could this nun really have caused an entire building to explode, or is there an even more sinister secret surrounding the old convent and its former inhabitants?
Explore Christie’s supernatural side in The Hound of Death in this CD audiobook and let everything you believe in be challenged by one of the foremost mystery writers of the 20th Century. A spooky addition to any Christie audiobook collection.
