Pretty, young Anne came to London looking for adventure. In fact, adventure comes looking for her--and finds her immediately at Hyde Park Corner tube station.

After all, who was the man in the brown suit who examined the body? And why did he race off, leaving a cryptic message behind: "17-122 Kilmorden Castle"?

About the Author:

Dame Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was a British crime writer best known for her detective novels and short stories. According to Guinness World Records, she is the best-selling novelist of all time, her novels having sold over four billion copies and having been translated into more than one hundred languages. The Agatha Award for best mystery and crime writers was named in her honor.



Emilia Fox, an acclaimed and award-winning actress, most notably played the title role in the play Katherine Howard at the Chichester Festival Theatre, and Clara Copperfield in a television movie production of David Copperfield. In 2004 she began playing pathologist Nikki Alexander on the television series Silent Witness. In 2006 she garnered much praise for her role in the independent comedy-drama Cashback.

From AudioFile:

Smart, plucky Anne Beddingfeld sees a man die strangely in a London tube station and decides to investigate the mystery herself. When the case points toward South Africa, the orphaned Anne uses her life savings to buy a ticket on an African-bound liner and heads off toward much adventure and intrigue in this delightful 1924 novel. Emilia Fox infuses Anne's voice with a level-headed bravery and uses a mix of British accents and intonations to inform listeners of the social class and personalities of the rest of the large class. An excellent job, marred only by her tendency to make all men speak in a husky whisper. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
