Publisher's Summary

A personal advertisement written in code attracts the attention of Tuppence Beresford. When Tuppence suspects that the code involves the Three Arts Ball, she persuades Tommy to attend dressed in costume. Tuppence's suspicions prove to be correct when a murder takes place, but as all of the guests are dressed in masquerade, identifying the killer may be more difficult than first thought....

    "Sucks!"

    Downloaded multiple times and story barely begins and cuts off to standard Audible closing. Have tried to tell Audible and got no resolution. As I said, sucks.

    Story
    "Very Disappointed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is a good story this version does not make for a good story. This version is not the entire story and in fact, stops right after the murder. What a waste!


    Has Finessing the King turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, this has not turned me off of this genre but it makes me wonder if the other Agatha Christie short stories I own are only part of the story.


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The dictation is perfect and Fraser does an amazing job narrating.


    What character would you cut from Finessing the King?

    This is a Tommy and Tuppence mystery but this narrated version stops as soon as the body is discovered.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not the entire storyline and is very disappointing when you purchase it to listen to as a distractor while working.
