Agatha Christie’s shocking courtroom drama, read on audio by her grandson, Mathew Prichard.

When wealthy spinster Emily French is found murdered, suspicion falls to Leonard Vole, the man to whom she hastily bequeathed her riches before she died.

Leonard assures the investigators that his wife, Romaine Heilger, can provide them with an alibi. However, when questioned, Romaine informs the police that Vole returned home late that night covered in blood.

During the trial Ms French’s housekeeper, Janet, gives damning evidence against Vole, but as Romaine’s cross-examination begins, her motives come under scrutiny from the courtroom. One question remains: will justice out?

A typical twist to the tale This is a short story by Agatha Christie where the end leaves the reader open mouthed. The story is about a layer who feels that his client is innocent of murder despite the circumstantial evidence against him and the tale describes his search to prove him innocent which in the end boils down to the testimony of one witness. A recommended bedtime read!!!!
