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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 2/17/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 1/20/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Violet | 1/20/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 1/19/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyrie | 1/19/2014

    " It's more of a gothic romance/creepy story than I remembered. Definitely psychological, and not in the "I'm employing my grey cells" sort of way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorena | 1/18/2014

    " Great. Suspense and mystery will make you have chills. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny Poole | 1/13/2014

    " Very odd Agatha Christie novel. I prefer Poirot or Miss Marple. This one attempted to use gothic imagery & was far from successful. Far too much dialog, so it was a slow & kinda dull read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bhavya Mathur | 12/29/2013

    " Deception to the one who loves you doesn't let you be happy "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 12/6/2013

    " Not my favorite Christie, although Hugh Fraser did an excellent job with the reading. This just left me vaguely dissatisfied. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Inrisrini | 11/15/2013

    " Compare to other AC's novels, this one is unique and binds the reader till the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashish Sharma | 10/16/2013

    " Found it little absurd in the end because of the climax...i felt as if the book cheated on me...anyways just before the end the book was pretty gripping..can read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 9/8/2013

    " This Christie is an uncommon atmospheric thriller. It's not quite a mystery and not quite a who-done-it, though there are elements of both. We don't get a dead body until about 3/4 of the way into the story, so the majority is onset--well written, eerily normal and tension building onset. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasha | 4/21/2013

    " Only my second Agatha Christie read ever and the best so far. This is a stand alone and really pretty good. It had such a great gothic feel throughout and a really great twist at the end. I am definitely going to read more of her works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sofie | 3/26/2013

    " A lot more sinister than most of Christie's works. It starts off almost dull and very uneventful, but the sense of uneasiness just grows throughout the book, and the twist at the end is brilliant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Akuavi | 2/15/2013

    " Very eerie...probably one of the most terrifying of her stories. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roshni | 10/22/2012

    " Too psychological for me, not enough actual mystery and all I could think was that the main character was insane - almost reminiscent of Poe, but not as effective "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 7/27/2012

    " The first half was two stars, the second half was four stars. I did not see the ending coming at all ... but it felt "endless" to get there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 12/8/2011

    " A little slow in the beginning but the twist at the end was well worth it!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mackie Mccue | 10/11/2011

    " This is my favorite book EVER. I'm Agatha Christie fanatic, but this book is completely unlike anything else I've read by her. It's difficult to say much about it without giving too much away, so I'll just say if you like romances and mysteries you MUST read this book. You'll thank me, I promise! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samita | 6/20/2011

    " Mike was kind of boring narrator, and I kept waiting for ~something to happen. The twist did caught me by surprise though, it kind of makes me want to give this book an extra star :) I think my problem is that I've read too many Agatha books by now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 5/6/2011

    " Typical Agatha Christie. Everything happens in the last few pages. I love it. Had no idea of the ending. Worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chavonne | 5/4/2011

    " This book reminded me of "Rebecca"--not a mystery but more of a romantic thriller. It's not what I'm used to in my Christie, but it was enjoyable. I prefer her light works much more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 5/2/2011

    " Not my favorite Christie, although Hugh Fraser did an excellent job with the reading. This just left me vaguely dissatisfied. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 4/11/2011

    " Classic example of Agatha Christie.Recommended by her grandson. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicola | 3/30/2011

    " Sometimes Christie gets a little too dark for my taste. This was one of those times. Clever plot, well designed, but so dark that it scared me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sadie | 1/25/2011

    " I see what you did there, Agatha. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elaine | 1/16/2011

    " This was a very different outing for Dame Christie. It was a gothic novel written in the first person. I was unable to finish it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elva | 1/7/2011

    " gothic, psychological story of a sociopath. "
