About the Author
Agatha Christie was born in 1890. During the World War I she worked as a hospital dispenser, where she gleaned the working knowledge of various poisons. Her first novel was "The Mysterious Affair at Styles," published in 1920, followed over the next six years by four more detective novels and a short story collection. However, it was not until the publication of "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" that Agatha Christie s reputation was firmly established. In 1930 the sharp-witted spinster sleuth Miss Marple made her first appearance in "Murder at the Vicarage." In all, Agatha Christie published 80 crime novels and short story collections. As her play "The Mousetrap" (the longest-running play in the history of the theater) testifies, Agatha Christie s detective stories are likely to appeal for a long time to come. Agatha Christie was awarded a CBE in 1956 and was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1971. She died in 1976."

As a huge fan of radio drama I can tell you that this one creates the atmosphere and you could be right in the story with the characters. I am not going to give the game away so you will have to either by the book or radio play to find out who dunnit. These stories are a bit of nostalgia and fun and if you like this then AudioGo have scores more that you will most likely enjoy too. Price wise these are excellent value.
The basic plot sees Luke Fitzwilliam investigating a series of deaths in a village, after the lady who told him of her suspicions is killed. The dramatization sticks very closely to Agatha Christie's original novel and runs for around an hour and a half. So if you enjoy good quality radio drama then why not give Agatha Christie's Murder Is Easy a go.
Murder is Easy is one of Agatha Christie's one-offs and is splendidly cast, I thought the actors were brilliantly selected and the production - pretty much as always - is great.
I thought the story was a bit hysterical 'he did it!', 'no he did it!' and that might be true to the book but it does make you ask yourself would a policeman really behave like this? I hate asking those questions because it means I haven't sunk into the story as much as I'd like. It is fun though and I enjoyed it and it is a happy way to pass an idle moment.
She waffles on about a series of murders in her sleepy little village & how she is off to Scotland yard to reveal all.
He of course thinks she's mad right up to the point where she gets 'accidentally' run over & killed. His suspicions aroused Fitzwilliam makes his way to the old womans village to investigate.
As others have already stated this is far from being amongst Dame Agatha's best. The thing that I really enjoyed was a feeling of a time gone by, an innocence that in truth probably never really existed.
The village all take Fitzwilliam's word for it that he's the old woman's nephew without any evidence. The inhabitants of the village are dropping like flies and no one bats an eyelid!
All sorts of incongruities that these days would be hunted down via the web and exposed for all to see on some social network site! I have no beef with technology but it is a rather pleasant 90 minutes spent in the company of people living simpler lives at a pace that doesn't require having to be 'in the know' 24 hours a day...just the odd murder or two to liven things up a bit.
As Fitzwilliam Patrick Baladi, (nope no idea) makes for pleasant company. Michael Cochrane goes hell for leather as the blustering, frightful old bore Lord Whitfield. The cast all play well and it's amazing how well a story can be told by drama in just 90 short minutes.
Not a classic then but everyone involved gives their best to make this enjoyable and it makes a refreshing change to see a typical Christie plot without either Marple or Poirot following the scent.
Good fun and a pleasant listen.
