Who has choreographed this dastardly scheme? Who will be left to tell the tale? Clues and red herrings abound in this masterpiece from Agatha Christie, her most popular mystery ever.

Norman Barrs has over 17 Broadway shows to his credit, as well as a lengthy residence with the famed Dublin Gate Theater.From AudioFile:
Ten people come to an island. None of them will leave alive. One of the most beloved and respected stories in all of crime fiction is elegantly read by Norman Barrs, whose sophisticated British tones are perfect for the famous writer. Although Christie is known for her plots more than her characterizations, Barrs manages to bring all ten characters to their short lives with subtle changes of tone and pitch. He also lends just the right emotional notes of outrage and fear to the many narrative passages. This reading is especially recommended for those who know only the watered-down Hollywood version of the tale. S.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
