Publisher's Summary

An urgent cry for help brings Poirot to France. But he arrives too late to save his client, whose brutally stabbed body now lies face downwards in a shallow grave on a golf course.

But why is the dead man wearing his son's overcoat? And who was the impassioned love-letter in the pocket for? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse....

    Story
    "One of the best"
    If you could sum up Murder on the Links in three words, what would they be?

    Must get it!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder on the Links?

    I loved the parts where Hercule went up against the "expert detective". While the he was searching for clues with a microscope, Poirot was examining a piece of pipe and piles of old clothes.


    What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love the way he is consistent with the voices of the characters that are in multiple books. It makes it very easy to know who is talking without him saying so.


    Any additional comments?

    One of my favorites so far!! Never saw the end coming!

    Story
    "Book 2 in the Poirot Series"

    This is my second Poirot story as I am attempting to read them all and mostly in order. This is also the second story written through the narrative of Captain Hastings. I must admit after just finishing Murder at Styles, I was beginning to get annoyed at Hastings' style of always looking down on Poirot and in general being too self important. That said, the overall story is wonderful, the mystery twisting until the end and the performance never faltering. Enjoy!

    Story
    "Not the best AC, but still good."

    A complex narrative that doesn't lend itself to this format. You need the time that only reading can give you, or the visual of film.

    But it's nice background listening, and Hugh Fraser is so good as a reader.

    "Murder on the Links"

    Another great mystery of murder and intrigue where you can figure out who did it until the very end.

    Story
    "A late convert digs Poirot."

    Agatha Christie where have you been all my life? Or should, I say Poirot? I can't say I care for Miss Marple, but I loved "And Then.." and the first two HP's have been fun. Fraser really brought these characters to life, and I've found myself saying, "Ta, ta, ta" inexplicably. Don't pass this one up - following the threads may require Tylenol, but you'll enjoy it!

    "Great mystery and classic Poirot"

    This was my second Poirot book and after the first I was anxious to read more. Although he is an odd fellow his methods are so interesting and this book is a great example of that. It had me guessing to the end. Just as I thought I had it sorted another plot twist was thrown at me. Absolutely loved it!

    Story
    "Golf kills -- Poirot putts to a victory"

    The second Poirot novel was almost as enjoyable as "The Mysterious Affair at Styles" and Hastings seems less dismissive of Poirot's skills, though he still has doubts. Silly man.

    The title and cover are a little misleading as what to expect. I imagined the story happening in high society at a golf club or country club out of any movie or television show of the 20s, but that isn't the case. It is at a more isolated country estate.

    The ending made sense based on what was presented yet I was surprised and delighted by the reveal. Terrific!

    I'm really looking forward to listening to more stories and suspect the departure of one supporting character at the end doesn't last.

    Story
    "New favorite!"

    I've been going through the poirot series in order with the addition of the orient express and find this book to my current favorite. I was constantly guessing and feeling like a real Hastings. The only drawbacks I can think of is how confusing all the similarly sounding names can make following the story and the final romantic pairing. It felt a little too fantastic and I think I would have found it more believable had Jacque gone to South America alone.
