    Story

    It's spring in the tiny, forgotten village; buds are on the trees, and the first flowers are struggling through the newly thawed earth. But not everything is meant to return to life. When some villagers decide to celebrate Easter with a séance at the Old Hadley House, they are hoping to rid the town of its evil - until one of their party dies of fright.

    Sara says: "Spring in Three Pines"
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    Louise Penny offers incredible depth to all of her characters, and each book in the Gamache series probes into the characters of Three Pines more and more. Penny's latest book offers a mystery that leaves you guessing until the end when the truth is finally revealed. Incredible writing AND an incredible plot? Awesome.

    Story
    (101)

    Finicky Hercule Poirot has retired to the countryside. Dr. Sheppard, observing his new neighbor, is sure that he must be a former hairdresser. But the brutal murder of wealthy Roger Ackroyd reveals the truth: the peculiar little man is actually a detective par excellence. Poirot shrewdly sorts out the clues and shocks everyone with the facts about the killer, in this stunning landmark of the mystery genre.

    Jon says: "Who killed Roger Ackroyd?"
    "Great Stuff."
    Overall

    I have been listening to British mysteries downloaded from Audible for a while now, but had not yet listened to any Agatha Christie... I love it! This mystery is great... What I love about this and other Christie novels (at least with Hercule Poirot) is that that all the details are presented early, and Poirot puts them together in his sassy little way. Robin Baily does a great job narrating and performing all the voices. I do prefer David Suchet's interpretation of Poirot (Murder on the Orient Express), but Baily's is certainly fine. The best part, which doesn't relate to the mystery itself, is when he's performing the rapid dialogue of 4 characters during a Ma Jong game. Fantastic!
