Lord Edgware Dies: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

When Lord Edgware is found murdered the police are baffled. His estranged actress wife was seen visiting him just before his death and Hercule Poirot himself heard her brag of her plan to "get rid" of him. But how could she have stabbed Lord Edgware in his library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? It's a case that almost proves to be too much for the great Poirot.

    "AKA 13 At Dinner a Somewhat Predictable Mystery"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would reccomend this book any Christie fans as somewhat standark Poirot fare. It is typical for Christie's Poirot novels of that period.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lord Edgware Dies?

    The murder of a somewhat periferal character.


    Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Hugh Fraser always gives a good performance in these audiobooks. It is a bit humorous to hear what his interpretation of an American accent is. Like other Brittish readers, it sounds like they learned their American accents from old gangster movies.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions here, murder victims were not very sympathetic characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd bought this book by mistake, it is one of those Christie books that has more than one title. I'd already purchased 13 at Dinner on CD several years ago and didn't know I'd purchased the same book until I was well into the beginning. It is pretty typical for an early Poirot novel, Hastings is the side kick again. Although I thought it an entertaining story I liked Peril at End house and some of the other early books better; though I will say for any fan of Poirot mysteries it's a must have, must read addition to their collection.
