Three of Agatha Christie's most enjoyable stories, revamped for radio. In 'Philomel Cottage', everything looks rosy when Alex and Terry set up their own e-commerce company in Philomel Cottage, until money goes missing from Alex's account. Soon she is questioning her partner - and, indeed, the cottage itself...In 'Swan Song', Polina Nazarova is a soprano whose past is dangerously entangled with the present. Given the opportunity to sing her Tosca opposite the arrogant and cruel Andre Breon, it seems that her desire for revenge may prove irresistible. 'Magnolia Blossom' sees Theo determined to seek happiness with her husband's business rival, Vincent. Having fled London for Paris, however, she soon learns of Richard's financial collapse - and discovers that rather more than just his job is at stake. Without the help of Poirot or Marple, the protaganists must be the masters of their own fate in these suspenseful mysteries with a twist in the tale. 2 CDs. 1 hr 30 mins.

Author Biography - Agatha Christie
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."
