9780006168911: A Pocket Full Of Rye

Rex Fortescue, king of a financial empire, was sipping tea in his "counting house" when he suffered an agonizing and sudden death. On later inspection, the pockets of the deceased were found to contain traces of cereals.

Yet, it was the incident in the parlor which confirmed Miss Marple's suspicion that here she was looking at a case of crime by rhyme. . . .

About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in 1890. During the World War I she worked as a hospital dispenser, where she gleaned the working knowledge of various poisons. Her first novel was The Mysterious Affair at Styles, published in 1920, followed over the next six years by four more detective novels and a short story collection. However, it was not until the publication of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd that Agatha Christie’s reputation was firmly established. In 1930 the sharp-witted spinster sleuth Miss Marple made her first appearance in Murder at the Vicarage. In all, Agatha Christie published 80 crime novels and short story collections. As her play The Mousetrap (the longest-running play in the history of the theater) testifies, Agatha Christie’s detective stories are likely to appeal for a long time to come. Agatha Christie was awarded a CBE in 1956 and was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1971. She died in 1976.

From AudioFile:

The BBC generally excels at transforming Agatha Christie's full-length mystery books into short audio productions. This one is no exception; it is beautifully acted, well-produced, and a short one-and-a-half hours. It begins with an elderly businessman found dead in his office with grains of rye in his pocket. Soon, his very young widow dies while eating bread and honey. Thankfully, Miss Marple arrives to help the police identify a killer with a fondness for nursery rhymes, and all, so to speak, is well. The production consists of conversation with bridging sections in Miss Marple's voice. It will please everyone, including those of us who prefer Christie's actual writing. A.C.S.
