Narrator Simon Jones takes on a riot of madcap characters in this early Agatha Christie mystery, The Secret of Chimneys. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten talk about the fun of listening to a classic mystery narrated by the masterful Simon Jones, especially when it’s packed with hilarious and delightful characters. Anthony Cade agrees to help a friend by delivering the manuscript of a dead nobleman to an English publisher. Naturally, he’s then dragged into international intrigue, upper-crust scandals, jewel thieves, and a murder at an English country estate. The production has the atmosphere of a classic full-cast radio play.
