Poirot believed he could save the man from the gallows. What he didn't realise was that his own life was now in great danger.

"The plot is perfect and the characters are wonderful." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"The best Poirot since such pre-war classics as Cards on the Table." (New York Times)
"So simple, so economical, so completely baffling. Every clue scrupulously given, with superb sleight of hand." (Sunday Times)
"One of her best"
Not as well known as 'orient express' or 'death on the Nile', but this book is one of her best with solid back story (where are they now) and excellent characterisations of all the residents at Broadhinney. Coupled with High Fraser's narration this is one of the best Christies I've download.
You can't go wrong with Agatha Christie. Time and again I return to her books (spoken or word) due to the timeless quality and appeal of her work.
I love Hugh Fraser narrating Agatha Christie
now own almost all of the them. Definitely recommend
"Mrs McGinty is Dead"
How is it that your past always catches, you up? An old person is murdered, they try the culprit, committed to death, but the detective who collected all the evidence isn't happy good old Poirot is on hand to help his friend, can he do it, before his friend retires & the suspect is hanged in 3 weeks......
This is my favourite Agatha Christie, Poirot, story. Whilst one suspects the murderer pretty quickly, the twists and turns and individuals stories are fascinating as they unfold.
Hugh Frasier's narration is superb. His vocal characterisations brilliant. I love his voice, and his range of accents etc is extraordinary. You could be listening to a play, he is so good.
