The Man in the Brown Suit is Agatha Christie at her best, as a young woman makes a dangerous decision to investigate a shocking "accidental" death she witnesses at a London tube station. 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"?

"Smart, plucky Anne Beddingfeld sees a man die strangely in a London tube station and decides to investigate the mystery herself. When the case points toward South Africa, the orphaned Anne uses her life savings to buy a ticket on an African-bound liner and heads off toward much adventure and intrigue in this delightful 1924 novel. Emilia Fox infuses Anne's voice with a level-headed bravery and uses a mix of British accents and intonations to inform listeners of the social class and personalities of the rest of the large class. An excellent job, marred only by her tendency to make all men speak in a husky whisper. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
