Towards Zero Audio CD
[Read by Hugh Fraser]
The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense — creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters — brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to audio, including one of her own ten favorite novels, Towards Zero, which puts Superintendent Battle and Inspector Leach on the case as they investigate the murder of an elderly widow.
What is the connection among a failed suicide attempt, a wrongful accusation of theft against a schoolgirl, and the romantic life of a famous tennis player? To the casual observer, apparently nothing. But when a house party gathers at Gulls Point, the seaside home of an elderly widow, earlier events come to a dramatic head. As Superintendent Battle discovers, it is all part of a carefully laid plan — for murder.
