Just when young Anne is looking for an adventure in London, she witnesses a man fall onto the live track at Hyde Park Corner tube station. Anne realizes the examination of the man was oddly done, and the doctor who did it inadvertently dropped a note, which Anne soon picks up.

It was an agent’s order to go to Mill House in Marlow, where a dead woman had been found. A young man in a brown suit was identified as a suspect, having entered the house soon after the woman and a note that read, "17.1 22 Kilmorden Castle."

Narration ruins it

Presumably an American narrator who can’t fully reproduce the English accent and who is unfamiliar with the cadence and the phrases of the era. It was jarring and annoying and I would urge the company that produced this recording to think twice before doing the same thing again. I listened for less than an hour before returning it.

Fab Story - Weird Narration

A great story as one would expect from Agatha.
The narration was a bit odd though, not really bad, just odd. Sounded like a forced british accent.
Still loved it though :)

One of Agatha Christie’s best

Recommended . A thoroughly enjoyable piece of escapism that is once I got over the unusual narration

Story Ruined by Narration

I agree with the other reviewers, the narration is awful.
Not only is the pretend English accent and pronunciations completely wrong, it isn't even the correct gender of the main character, who is "recounting" the story!

Terrible narration.

Terrible narration for a British classic. The narrator sounds like an automaton.
The accent is fake and jarring and spoiled it. Such a shame.

Classic

Classic Christie at her best, twists and turns keeps you guessing. Though no Poirot or Miss Marple it is still a worthy read.
Jonathan Waters narration keep the story flowing.
I received this audiobook from Free Audiobook Codes for a review.
