A blizzard has hit England. In the tiny village of Sittaford, on the fringes of Dartmoor, a party of six is gathered in Sittaford House, home of Captain Trevelyan. He has rented the house out for the winter and is staying in a nearby village.

As evening draws in, a seance is proposed. But it reveals more than they had anticipated - TREVELYAN DEAD, spells out the board. Slowly the table begins to rock again, spelling out the word M-U-R-D-E-R. Is it true? And who would kill a man who doesn't have an enemy in the world?

John Moffatt and Stephen Tompkinson star in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of a classic from the Queen of Crime.

    " also published as The Murder at Hazelmoor "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hilary | 1/17/2014

    " One of the few Chrisitie's not in a series (ie Poirot, Miss Marple or Tommy & Tuppence) but none the worse for that, a character from previous books does have a cameo role which nicely links it. A story of deceit, aliases and strength of convictions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 12/12/2013

    " Found an Agatha Christie I'd never read, enjoyed it, None of her usual detectives show up. It was great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen E | 11/29/2013

    " A non-Poirot, non-Marple mystery. I remembered the solution, unfortunately, but enjoyed the way Christie handled the romance. [May 2011] "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ally Myers | 11/24/2013

    " This was the first Non Poirot A.C. book I have read, and it was brill. I loved the setting on Dartmoor and could relate to the places talked about as i live near them which felt novel. The book was easy to read and follow the plot with a brilliant twist at the end. Loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derk | 11/14/2013

    " A very well-done classic mystery. Of course I had read it before, but only remembered a few key elements and even though one of them was "who done it," I still thoroughly enjoyed the reading. (Note: also titled in other editions as "The Sittaford Mystery." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wallflowering | 11/14/2013

    " The Sittaford Mystery by Agatha Christie "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracey Dale | 8/12/2013

    " Once again, Christie wrote a beautiful and practical heroine. Getting a pattern now...Didn't guess the murderer though: i fell for all the red herrings :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mona | 7/25/2013

    " Everything you expect from an Agatha Christie novel - sans Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trudi | 6/25/2013

    " Also known as Murder at Hazelmoor. Read from the Agatha Christie 1930s Omnibus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Selene | 3/29/2013

    " This was a really pleasing read. As normal Christie's characters walk off the page and you never know quite who did it until the end. Very enjoyable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette Meier | 10/30/2012

    " Delightful, funny mystery. Really picked up my spirits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Selvi | 9/9/2012

    " a fun mystery book from Agatha. I'd finished this book in 6 hours during my work lol. so fun to read and funny ending too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geert Goeman | 8/30/2012

    " 'The Sittaford Mysterie' by Agatha Christie was first published in 1933. It's one of her better crime-novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sai Aditya | 6/24/2012

    " a simple yet interesting brain teaser "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 5/28/2012

    " This one is tricky to figure out, but Christie handles it with finesse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Em | 2/14/2012

    " Great plot, mostly believable characters. I didn't like one of the main characters -Emily. She's a very strong female character, but too much so. It gets a little annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 12/29/2011

    " Pretty much Christie by the numbers - a quick Saturday night read, lent some interest by my edition which was a 1940s war-time printing in tiny type on cheap paper (each page basically crumbled to dust as I completed it) with exhortations to buy War bonds on the back cover. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauretta Allen | 7/23/2011

    " She got me on this one. "

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

    " I cannot believe the heroine stuck with the loser! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 6/19/2011

    " I really enjoyed this one! It was refreshing, with a twist that kept me wondering right up to the reveal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hilary | 5/4/2011

    " One of the few Chrisitie's not in a series (ie Poirot, Miss Marple or Tommy & Tuppence) but none the worse for that, a character from previous books does have a cameo role which nicely links it. A story of deceit, aliases and strength of convictions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne | 3/20/2011

    " I love Agatha Christie. It's a pretty good mystery. Not my favorite of her's. This is not a recurring character like Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 2/2/2011

    " I found this kind of a weak book, on the whole. The detective, Inspector Narracott, was essentially useless, and it was actually the accused killer’s fiancee, Emily Trefusis, who solved the crime. I also found the solution pretty unsatisfying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 1/30/2011

    " All I can say is Agatha Christie is a genius, like usual. She never disappoints! I listened to this one on cd and thoroughly enjoyed the narrator. It could be because I have a thing for British accents, but whatever...it was still awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 10/25/2010

    " Vintage Christie with an ending I didn't see coming. Likable characters and several twists that I didn't see coming either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 10/17/2010

    " Since I have read a lot of female mystery writers lately, I decided to go back to the Queen, Agatha Christie, and see if she still holds up and it was a resounding YES. Really enjoyed this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aline | 10/12/2010

    " It was not as good as other Agatha Christie's novels, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. Two characters were especially interesting in this book: Emily Trefusis and Miss Percehouse, two really strong women, that always obtain what they want.
