Mrs Dolly Barton wakes up to a nasty shock, when her frightened maid breathlessly informs her that she has discovered a body in the library. The identity of the young woman with platinum blonde hair, strangled amongst rows of books, is unknown. And so is her killer…
It’s up to the nation’s favourite spinster sleuth, the unflappable Miss Marple, to get to the bottom of this strange and shocking mystery before the killer has a chance to strike again.
This startling full-cast performance of Agatha Christie’s internationally bestselling detective novel is another exciting production from the BBC. Available to buy as audiobooks on CD or to download in MP3 format, the extensive collection of adaptations of the Queen of Crime’s best works provide exceptional quality BBC Drama that can be enjoyed anywhere at any time.
June Whitfield makes the endearing role of the deceptively meek old Miss Jane Marple her own once again, as seemingly innocent witnesses let slip the subtle inconsistencies that Agatha Christie masterfully weaves together in a commendably well-constructed whodunit, testament to her international fame and longstanding literary success.
‘The Body in the Library’ on BBC audiobook provides an hour and a half of killer audio entertainment.
