In one of London’s most elegant shops, a decorative doll in green velvet adopts some rather human—and sinister—traits …

A country gentleman is questioned about a murder that has yet to be committed …

While summoning spirits, a medium is drawn closer to the world of the dead than she ever imagined possible …

In a small country church, a dying man’s last word, sanctuary, becomes both an elegy and a clue to a crime.

Only the Queen of Mystery could have conceived such delicious treats for suspense lovers. And only the inimitable Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple could solve them with such chilling perfection.

Dame Agatha Christie (1890–1976) was a British crime writer best known for her detective novels and short stories. According to Guinness World Records, she is the best-selling novelist of all time, her novels having sold over four billion copies and having been translated into more than one hundred languages. The Agatha Award for best mystery and crime writers was named in her honor.

About the Narrators

Isla Blair is an India-born actress of British descent. She made her first stage appearance in 1963 as Philia in the London debut of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and her first credited film appearance in the 1965 horror film Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors.

Joan Hickson (1906–1998) was an actress who appeared on stage in several plays and in over seventy films. She is best known for playing Miss Marple in the BBC television series, a role that was encouraged by Agatha Christie, who wrote, “ hope you will play my dear Miss Marple” after seeing Hickson in Christie’s Appointment with Death.

Anna Massey (1937–2011), the daughter of Hollywood actor Raymond Massey, was born in England and enjoyed an award-winning career on stage, in movies, and on television. Her stage roles earned her the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award, the London Critics’ Circle Theatre Award, and a nomination for a Tony Award for her only Broadway appearance, in The Reluctant Debutante. Her television awards include the UK’s BAFTA TV Award for Best Actress and the RTS Television Award. Her best-known film roles were as Helen in Peeping Tom, Babs in Alfred Hitchcock’s Frenzy, and more recently in The Oxford Murders and The Machinist. She received critical praise from AudioFile magazine for her narrations, especially of Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons, Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, and Wild Swans by Jung Chang. 

David Suchet may be most familiar to listeners from his role as Inspector Poirot, originally on PBS TV’s Mystery! and now on A&E. He has also appeared on Broadway in Amadeus, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (for which he won Best Actor, Critic’s Circle Award), Oleanna (Best Actor, Royal Variety Club), and Timon of Athens (Best Actor, Evening Standard Award). He has numerous film and television credits to his name.

He has won thirteen prestigious Audie Awards and was Booklist’s very first Voice of Choice in 2008. He has narrated more than eight hundred audiobooks over almost thirty years, beginning when he was a radio newsreader for the BBC in London.
