9780007211203: Why Didn't They Ask Evans?

While playing golf, Bobby Jones and Dr. Thomas discover a dying man at the base of the cliff. The man manages to get out the words "Why didn't they ask Evans?" before he dies. Bobby is in a hurry to keep an appointment, so he asks a passerby to stay with the body. Just days later, he meets up with childhood friend Lady Frances ("Frankie") Derwent. A few days after the inquest, Bobby is drugged when someone slips morphine into his beer. Remembering things now that don't seem to match up about the death, Bobby decides to investigate the matter further and Frankie immediately agrees to help. The two of them are soon hard at work to discover the murderer of the dead man, and they soon must also protect themselves as they find their own lives in danger. Actress Emilia Fox reads this vintage Christie mystery with dramatic panache.

About the Author:

Agatha Christie is the most popular mystery writer of all time. In a career that spans over half a century, her name is synonymous with brilliant deception, ingenious puzzles, and the surprise denouement. By virtually inventing the modern mystery novel, she earned her title as the Queen of Crime.

Jenny Funnell’s many television credits include Agatha Christie’s Peril at End House, As Time Goes By, Casualty, Drop the Dead Donkey, Boon, Bergerac, and Brookside. She has had leading roles in hundreds of radio plays and series.

From AudioFile:

It's classic Christie. Amid a peaceful English setting, a hiker dies at the foot of a cliff. Was he pushed, or did he slip? Christie's original plot twists make it easy to arrive at incorrect conclusions and then have to rethink the mystery. Emilia Fox, who has a name worthy to be a Christie character herself, has a crisply captivating voice as she showcases characters who are lively, clever, sympathetic, and detestable, as the unfolding story demands. Packaging is good, other than an overcrowded cover. Note the Orange Triangle announcing that this is a "Mystery Masters" and thus unabridged. L.C.
