    "This story is bonkers"

    The story makes no sense at all. Even the initial set up is mental. But the reading - ah! Perfection. He nails it. If anyone else had read it I'd have given it two stars.

    "Narration is GREAT!"

    I picked up this book because of all the hype and I was intrigued of the plot and twists. Was expecting a bit more action and maybe less characters but just because of the narration I kept on listening. The book itself an enjoyable cozy mystery.

    "Good Christie clone"

    If you're an Agatha Christie fan you should enjoy this book and Audible makes it better, just a little slow at the end, could have been tightened

    "I loved this mystery!"

    My one regret is my inability to adequately express how much I loved this book. It was well written with a very insightful plot. The narration was perfect. I am at a loss for words!

    "I enjoyed this"

    Keeping in mind that my exposure to Hercule Poirot has been primarily through PBS dramatizations, I enjoyed this rendering. It seemed fairly consistent in terms of environment, tension and complexity, but Poirot's final explication of who did what leading up to "whodunnit " was a bit drawn out.

    "Really Really Good"

    Great narration. Compelling characters and story line. Very much in the Christie tradition. Ms Sophia's dialogue captured Hercule to a Tee.

    Story
    "Ms. Hannah's work is all her own, and wonderful."

    I've read nearly all of her novels so far--a good and proper addiction!

    When she turns her attention to Poirot, a wonderful thing happens, as Hannah applies her unique talent for plot, character and surprise to his new cases: the Poirot we know shows heart to match his prodigious brain, and grapples with motives, crimes and suspects just a shade more strange than he ever has before.

    The performance by Julian Rhind-Tutt is flawless. As with many superior actors, he registers, and then disappears into Poirot, Edward, an Irish Lady, her caustic daughter, and the Garda, among many other characters. I have seen him perform many times, he's always wonderful, and his work here is no exception.

    If you're a Sophie fan, you won't be disappointed. Her unique take on character is here. For Dame Agatha fans, this book, as well as its predecessor, will be a joy!

    "Meh...."

    No Agatha Christies were cloned or dug up and revived in the production of this novel. A bit drier than an actual Christie authored Poirot adventure. And she can be dry AF!

    Story
    "where is Captain Hastings?"

    The plot is quite complex but the characters are not. They are very static and one dimensional-as a result, it is difficult to identify with them. The character who is the least interesting, unfortunately, is that of the newly added sidekick for Poirot, – – Catchpole. He lacks the naivete and amusing dim-
    wittedness of Captain Hastings and, although he's constantly referred to as being very smart, nothing he does or says seems to be very intelligent.

    "Great story, great performance"

    Wonderful performance of a story with wit and twist. The Christie family may have found a reason to resurrect Hercule, and a wonderful team to bless the world with new adventures.

    Well done; highly recommended.
