"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 McCiintyes dead"
what an intestine story of my strychnine and intrigue. Lots of different twists and turns to reveal the final outcome, you guessed it I didn't get the right murderer.
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.
