Beautiful, young Elinor Carlisle stands serenely in the dock accused of the murder of Mary Gerrard, her rival in love.

Agatha Christie was born in 1890 and created the detective Hercule Poirot in her debut novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles (1920). She achieved wide popularity with The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (1926) and produced a total of eighty novels and short-story collections over six decades. Twenty-four of Christie's best whodunits are now available from Black Dog & Leventhal as part of their bestselling hardcover Agatha Christie Collection.From AudioFile:
Elinor Carlisle has everything, so when she's to be tried for murder, everyone is shocked. Christie's clever plotting keeps even the most practiced sleuths on the trail until the very end of this topsy-turvy story. David Suchet renders each character with great individuality, interest, and seeming innocence, adding to the intrigue. Each of the stereotypes is fun, and even acceptable, under Suchet's influence. Listeners are in for an added treat because SAD CYPRESS is also one of Christie's best efforts. Not just for mystery fans, this portrait of manners will have wide appeal among fiction lovers.
