Mystery Audiobooks October 2010

CD Mystery Christie
     At Bertram’s Hotel
by Agatha Christie.  Read by Rosemary Leach.  7 discs.  7+ hours.

BCD Mystery Christie
     Elephants Can Remember
by Agatha Christie.  Read by John Moffatt.  6 discs.  6+ hours.
     “Mystery writer Ariadne Oliver calls upon old friend Hercule Poirot to help unravel the mystery behind the apparent double suicide of General and Lady Ravenscroft fifteen years earlier. In such a cold case, the two must rely on the memories of “elephants,” those older people who were around at the time, who recall events relating to the tragedy. John Moffatt’s narration is charming. Poirot’s Belgian accent and the variety of accents identifying British social classes are utterly believable. Moffatt’s sense of timing exactly captures the period, and no bon mot is left to chance. .., even Agatha Christie’s lesser works are entertaining, and Moffatt’s performance makes this one well worth a listen.”
