In another exceptional BBC Radio 4 audiobook dramatisation of one of Agatha Christie’s famous detective novels, brother and sister of London society Jerry and Joanna Burton are horrified when an accusative and highly offensive letter turns up on their doorstep. Having retreated to the quiet town of Lymstock to relax after being involved in a wartime plane crash, such lewd anonymous allegations are the last thing they could have wanted.
But it seems that the Burtons are not alone. A veritable flurry of poisonous letters have been circulating around the town, every one of them pointing an unfounded finger of blame at its recipient. The punitive accusations are too much for some to bear, and life (and death) in Lymstock soon gets horribly out of hand.
The sensational June Whitfield stars as Miss Marple - the visiting investigator whose considerable experience with the darker side of people’s behaviour may be just what Lymstock needs to get to the bottom of the mystery that is ruining, and taking, the lives of its confounded residents.
This commendable BBC Drama production is available for you to listen to on CD audiobook, or to download in MP3 format, so you can sit back and enjoy Agatha Christie’s chilling mystery without having to lift a finger!
