Description

Gipsy's Acre was a truly beautiful upland site with views out to sea, and in Michael Rogers it stirred a child-like fantasy. There, amongst the dark fir trees, he planned to build a house, find a girl, and live happily ever after. But as he left the village, a shadow of menace hung over the land, for this was the place where accidents happened. Perhaps Michael should have heeded the locals' warnings: "There's no luck for them as meddles with Gipsy's Acre." Michael Rogers is a man who is about to learn the true meaning of the old saying "In my end is my beginning".

Twist in the tale

This is an excellent short mystery thriller, easy and enjoyable to listen to. It is not in the usual Agatha Christie style, with comfortable old friends like Poirot and Miss Marple on hand to solve the crime.

There doesn't seem to be any crime, at first, just a hope of romance for young Michael Rogers and a long held dream of a beautiful house. But suppose he ignores the gypsy's warnings?

Suspicious characters, twists and turns and an unusual ending. All read beautifully by Hugh Fraser who just seems to find the right voice for each person every time.

not a normal Agatha Christie

the story is pretty weak, but if you are like me and listened to all the good ones you have to take what you can get.

A very different Christie

Having read most of Christie's detective books I found this one a major change. Still a mystery though with no detective taking the lead. Written in first person the husband takes us on a journey with a great twist - just loved it. Hugh Fraser is amazing. So may characters I had to keep reminding myself they were all the work of one man.
I had no idea Agatha Christie had written books such as this, so it is with excitement I head back into the Audible catalogue to search for more of her unexpected and unusual works.

Ungewöhnliches Buch für Agatha Christie

Wer viele Agatha Christies kennt wird dieses Buch von der Handlung und der Erzählweise überraschend anders finden.
Das Buch ist irgendwie eher ein Roman als ein Krimi und ich kann nicht sagen, ob es mir gefällt. Die Handlung ist keineswegs unlogisch oder abwegig, aber es ist auch keine "schöne" Geschichte, dazu ist sie zu düster und ungewöhnlich,
Fazit: Kein Buch zum sich entspannt zurücklehnen und rätseln, wer der Mörder ist. Aber ich bin definitiv froh es gehört zu haben.
