あらすじ・解説

Another title in the ever popular Agatha Christie series. The suave and debonair Colonel Race must solve a question, not of ‘accidental death or suicide’, but ‘murder or double murder’. 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. Anne is present on the platform when a thin man, reeking of mothballs, loses his balance and is electrocuted on the rails. The Scotland Yard verdict is accidental death. But Anne is not satisfied. 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’?

Wild romance and mysteries

Would you consider the audio edition of The Man in the Brown Suit to be better than the print version?

Definitly Yes! Emilia Fox smooth voice, wit and underlying humor makes you actually be on board of the ship and Africa.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Till the very end.

Which scene was your favorite?

It's too hard to pick one out.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Anne arrives in London to move in with her father's solicitor and his wife, she makes herself less attractive, so that the wife can feel herself a little bit more relax.

Any additional comments?

For anyone who would like to hear a fun, mysterious and romantic thriller, you are not going to be disappointed with the "Men in the brown suit".

Good mystery, unnecessary romance

Interesting story, and great heroine. A rather silly and dated romantic sub story tends to take away from, rather than enhance the plot.

not one of her best

As an unabashed Christie fan, I still have to warn you: this is definitely not one of her best. It's romance over mystery, third rate writing over detective suspense. An ok read, but only if you've read the others and are in withdrawal :)

Great story, shame about the narration

This is a lovely, light-hearted adventure story. It is often very funny. The heroine is resourceful and fun, there are lots of twists and turns and Agatha Christie shows her mastery of plot. There are plenty of knowing nods to tales of square-jawed types who with one bound are free from the villains.

I was very pleasantly surprised to come across Colonel Race as a young man who was very dashing and not a little romantic. I am now looking out for the other books in which he appears, I was very taken.

The only reason it might not go immediately on to my list for multiple listens is the narration. Some female narrators can do men's voices convincingly but sadly Emilia Fox is not one. She did a very good job of capturing the bright, feisty heroine but her men were all gruff and unconvincing.

Bad recording

This is a bad recording of the book. Be aware before buying it. It's very annoying when you're really into the story.

Didn't like the narration

All male characters were not convincing and sounded the same I hate to say it but men are better at crossing genders Hugh Fraser being the best.

Comedy voices

This isn’t the best Agatha Christie story but can’t help wondering whether it just isn’t helped by the unconvincing voices.
