Agatha Christie: Miss Marple — The Complete Short Stories (audio)


24 Festive Tasks: Door 1 – Día de los Muertos, Book

Audio revisit courtesy of Joan Hickson (who reads almost all of the stories), as well as Isla Blair and Anna Massey (who read one story each). Original review of the print edition HERE.

The audio is excellent and contains an extra (and somewhat sinister) “non-Miss-Marple” story, The Dressmaker’s Doll — the story narrated by Anna Massey — which was first published in book form in Double Sin and Other Stories (U.S., 1961) and in Miss Marple’s Final Cases (UK, 1979); the story of a doll that mysteriously appears one day in a dressmaker’s shop and slowly seems to want to take it over.

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
