  • Lesson 87 A perfect alibi 极好的不在犯罪现场的证据
    First listen and then answer the question. 听录音,然后回答以下问题。 What was wrong with the man's story?
    'At the time the murder was committed, I was travelling on the 8 o'clock train to London,' said the man. 'Do you always catch such an early train?' asked the inspector. 'Of course I do,' answered the man. 'I must be at work at 10 o'clock. My employer will confirm that I was there on time.' 'Would a later train get you to work on time?' asked the inspector. 'I suppose it would, but I never catch a later train.' 'At what time did you arrive at the station?' 'At ten to eight. I bought a paper and waited for the train.' 'And you didn't notice anything unusual?' 'Of course not.' 'I suggest,' said the inspector, 'that you are not telling the truth. I suggest that you did not catch the 8 o'clock train, but that you caught the 8.25 which would still get you to work on time. You see, on the morning of the murder, the 8 o'clock train did not run at all. It broke down at Ferngreen station and was taken off the line.'

    参考译文
    “在凶杀发生的时候,我正坐在8点钟开往伦敦的火车上。”那人说。 “您总是赶这样早的火车?”探长问。 “当然是的,”那人回答。“我必须在10点钟上班,我的雇主会证明我是按时到了那儿的。” “晚一点儿的车也能送您按时上班吗?” “我认为可以,但我从来不乘晚一点儿的车。” “您几点钟到的火车站?” “7点50分。我买了张报纸,等着车来。” “您没有注意到有什么异常情况发生吗?” “当然没有。” “我提醒您,”探长说,“您讲的不是实话。您乘的不是8点钟的火车,而是8点25分的,这次车同样能使您按时上班。您看,在凶杀发生的那天早晨,8点钟的那次车根本没有发。它在芬格林车站出了故障而被取消了。”
