VOK 702 – Agatha Christie Minipod 10 – The Seven Dials Mystery


In this spoiler-free episode Bina007 reviews the hilarious thriller, The Seven Dials Mystery, originally published in 1929. Slated by critics, the novel is a superb pastiche of po-faced boys-own spy novels of the time and stars Bundle Brent as a Bright Young Thing out to unmask a secret society. A spoiler-filled discussion of the solution is after the closing music.
