At the reading of Richard's will, Cora was clearly heard to say: "It's been hushed up very nicely, hasn't it...But he was murdered, wasn't he?"
In desperation, the family solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery.

It's amazing how, after writing so many detective stories, Christie still manages to surprise the reader/listerner with an unexpected solution to the mystery. Impeccable reading by Hugh Fraser as usual.
"After the Funeral "
It was lovely to hear Hugh Frasers voice again.
Well, what can I say..... your father dies, you go to the Funeral & wake then it's time for the reading of the will everyone's, happy,until one, of the daughters shouts up well, that was covered up well!! what do you mean the others asked? well, she said, the he was MURDERED! !!!!!!
"A classic mystery"
I liked the twist and turns of the story. At first you think it could be one person, then you doubt yourself and think it must be another. I did not like the narration. I thought it wasn't the best. I also thought, dispute an interesting plot, it wasn't one of Agatha Christie 's better novels.
I really didn't enjoy the narration. I felt that many of the character's sounded the same.
