The Sittaford Mystery [Agatha Christie]

By Agatha Christie

A blizzard has hit England.

In the tiny village of Sittaford, on the fringes of Dartmoor, a party of six is gathered in Sittaford House, home of Captain Trevelyan.

He has rented the house out for the winter and is staying in a nearby village.

As evening draws in, a seance is proposed.

But it reveals more than they had anticipated - TREVELYAN DEAD, spells out the board.

Slowly the table begins to rock again, spelling out the word M-U-R-D-E-R.

Is it true? And who would kill a man who doesn t have an enemy in the world? John Moffatt and Stephen Tompkinson star in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of a classic from the Queen of Crime.
