A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Agatha Christie's darkly suspenseful psychological thriller.

'Some are born to sweet delight/Some are born to endless night' (William Blake)

Agatha Christie wrote 'Endless Night' in 1967, and it is one of her greatest - and most unusual - novels. Creepy, malevolent and claustrophobic, it is a story about choices, the nature of good and evil, and grim retribution.

Mike Rogers had a childhood fantasy about what life would be like as an adult; he'd have a beautiful wife, they would live in a beautiful home, and this would be a peaceful and deserved reward for a turbulent early life. When he meets Ellie Gutman at a lovely, remote spot known as Gypsy's Acre, suddenly it is all within his grasp. However, things are not as idyllic as they seem - local legend has it that the land is cursed, and several terrible accidents have occurred there.

Mike and Ellie pay no attention to these tales: but when they move into their new home, the curse suddenly seems to come to life and they find themselves in grave danger...

Starring Jonathan Forbes and Lizzie Watts, this is a menacing drama that perfectly evokes the atmosphere of Agatha Christie's brooding, malevolent tale, infused with passion, hauntings and grim retribution.

    " This is the first Agatha Christie novel I have read. I will be happy to read more of her work after having read this. Exactly what I want out of a mystery novel thrilling with a twist at the end that makes you feel as though you should have known all along. "

    " A very enjoyable read with a much unexpected turn of events, lets just say that things are not what they seem and people can be described as being intrinsically evil, I cannot recall encountering a more sinister character created by Christie as the one in Endless Night. Christie builds this story up very well, almost like one big preparation scene, you know something bad is going to happen to one particular person and keep expecting it, but when it happens, it is still such a shock. "

    " This is the first Agatha Christie that I can ever remember reading. I would have given this book a five but for the first three quarters of this book I was just wondering what is the point. Then all of a sudden BAM you get to the nitty gritty and have to read to the end. The parts fall into place, and boy was I surprise you never thought that person was the killer, and not just of one person but how many more of this persons lifetime. I guess that is why Agatha Christie is considered as propably the best in her field. "

    " In the category of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, there is no detective to solve this one. But is anything bad really happening here, the young couple bought Gipsy's Acre and the land has a curse. "
