Sintesi dell'editore

A new unabridged Agatha Christie mystery, featuring the young adventurers Lady ‘Frankie’ Derwent and Bobby Jones. While playing an erratic round of golf, Bobby Jones slices his ball over the edge of a cliff. His ball is lost, but on the rocks below he finds the crumpled body of a dying man. With his final breath the man opens his eyes and says, ‘Why didn’t they ask Evans?’ Haunted by these words, Bobby and his vivacious companion, Frankie, set out to solve a mystery that will bring them into mortal danger…

Charming tale well performed

Really enjoyed this tale. Took a bit of remembering all the characters but well acted and a classic Christie tale with twists and charming main characters

Classis Christie

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Sure, it was fun.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The characters were cute and fun.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emilia Fox?

Someone with a better grasp of their American accent.

Do you think Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

Any additional comments?

A fun mystery in Christie's usual style.

Dreadful Narration

I am so very upset that this is the only option for beloved Agatha Christie. Hugh Fraser please complete the collection! You are the very best! Emilia has no feel for it, you can tell she is not passionate in any way! The accent alone in the opening chapter should be an indication. Great story ruined, I’d like my credit back!

Great story - waiting for Hugh Fraser to read it

Good story not often told. emilia Fox is ok but not brilliant and some of her voices are laughable - distracting even. Hurry up and get Hugh to finish the cannon of Agatha Christie :) he has the most amazing voice for audio books

Decent Christie ruined by narrator

I do hope that Emilia Fox won't be let loose on any more audiobooks. Her reading is wooden, and when she attempted any accent I was praying for it to stop. I'm assuming that the only reason she was chosen was that she can read in an RP accent. It's a shame, because this is one of Agatha Christie's more decent non- Poirot or Marple stories.

Superb reading

I have enjoyed Emilia Fox’s reading very much. Great ability to change intonation and give each character his/her own peculiarity. She is one of my favourite readers. I have loved the book greatly.

1920s early story

I enjoy this early Agatha Christie story for it's twists and turns but I really prefer the later stories, as they don't tend to be quite so full of 'jolly young things'. It is however still worth a listen.

I enjoyed this.

This is one of my favourite Agatha Christie stories and it was well read by Emilia Fox. Some of the voices were a bit odd, but overall well worth a listen.

Why didn't they ask Evans?

A sunny day playing golf a scream a3/4 dead body unconscious he wakes to say why didn't they ask Evans? then dies
Who is Evans and who is the victim was he pushed or fallen?
These are the questions Bobby wants answers to but little did he know what he was getting into. A very intriguing storyline with lots of twists and misdirection really good audio book
