    Roger Ackroyd knew too much. He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Now, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with a drug overdose.

    Late one night, two teachers investigate a mysterious flashing light in the sports pavilion, while the rest of the school sleeps. There, among the lacrosse sticks, they stumble upon the body of the unpopular games mistress, shot through the heart from point blank range.

    One of my favorites


    What did you like best about this story?

    It never got dull and the characters were well portrayed. You always thought you could predict the story, and then it did a "twist"!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The school with all the descriptions of the beginning of the 1st term and new people.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, I was just kept enthralled, which could be called extreme when you still have a busy life rushing around you all day.


    Any additional comments?

    Agatha Christie, has an amazing ability of making her characters "real"

    Any additional comments?

    I found the reader a little mono toned in his reading, but the story drew you into the plot so eventually you concentrated on what was unfolding and not how it was portrayed.

    Nick Buckley was an unusual name for a pretty young woman. But then she had led an unusual life. First, on a treacherous Cornish hillside, the brakes on her car failed. Then, on a coastal path, a falling boulder missed her by inches. Later, an oil painting fell and almost crushed her in bed. Upon discovering a bullet-hole in Nick's sun hat, Hercule Poirot decides the girl needs his protection. At the same time, he begins to unravel the mystery of a murder that hasn't been committed. Yet.

    Where does Peril at End House rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As a recent member I was impressed by the quality and versatility of the Narration. The story was a typical Agatha Christie, and I still couldn't guess "who did it"


    What other book might you compare Peril at End House to and why?

    I have not listened to many stories yet, other than Sherlock Holmes, and they both have been good so it is difficult to compare them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I was caught into all of the scenes, but I think the a scene in the last chapter caught my imagination the most.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    not really, as Murder Mysteries, don't tend to be that way inclined


    Any additional comments?

    Just a very good way to occupy ones time when one is busy with hand work, most enjoyable, the work just gets done.!!!!
