    "Dog Lovers Will Appreciate Bob & His Ball"

    I love Poirot mysteries. They are delightful, engaging, and an easy listen. Hugh Fraser is an excellent narrator and always reliable. While this was not my very favorite Poirot mystery, the wrinkle of Bob the dog and his ball is extremely memorable. The plot doesn't follow the same format as many Poirot mysteries, but contains all of Hercule's fun eccentricities--mustaches and everything!

    "Can depend on Agatha Christie"

    For a good read/listen, I can depend on Agatha Christie and Hugh Fraser. If reading or listening to other books has dumbed/numbed your mind, clean your palate with Christie. She and Hugh Fraser have become classics.

    Story
    "accidental death or murder?"

    In this case, Poirot takes on the job requested of him in a letter he received months too late - and long after the letter writer is dead.........did she die an accidental death, as has been officially stated, or was it murder? And if it was murder, who was the guilty party? There's a collection of relatives and hired help who all might get a piece of the inheritance, and it's up to Poirot to figure it out. Very nicely done by Christie from a kind of routine set up (as many of her's are). As for the dog......well, the deceased client's dog get a few "words" in the story too.
