Very intriguing, wonderfully crafted stories, narrated expertly by Hugh Frazer, the actual Captain Hastings of the TV series.
The collection are the stories that Farewell, my Lovely was stiched together from. Actually, if I hadn't read that first, this could have been a much better experience: the bleak atmosphere works all the same, but every storyline has a begininng, a middle and a decent ending. Elliott Gould is the perfect man for the job: although I knew most of the action, it was still worth listening to his interpretation.
Recommended only if you are a trule Raymond Chandler fan _or_ if you haven't read yet Farewell, my lovely.
Wanda McCaddon was a bit hard to get used to after the perfect narration of Hugh Frazer. The story is really excellent, cerainly among the better Poirot novels
One of the best Poirot stories -- masterfully narrated by Hugh Fraser, who also performed the narrating character in the David Suchet series. This is among the Agatha Christie books which are not only masterfully woven crime mysteries but also not without literary merits. It revolves around real ethical and moral dilemmas -- a relatively rare thing in murder mysteries.
