    Story
    "Interesting read for cozy fans"

    Narrator - Hugh Fraser

    Narration - Another novel featuring Hugh Fraser (the actor who portrays Captain Hastings in the A&E Series) as a narrator for the Poirot stories. His voice is very smooth and he nails the inflection in tones to really bring the story to life.

    Characters - This was Christie's second installment in the Poirot series and picks up some time after the first. Poirot and Hastings are further developed in this novel than the first and the characters are less exaggerated giving them a more realistic feel. The supporting cast were adequately developed, especially Hastings' latest romantic love interest. The main plot characters outside of the Poirot & Hastings duo, are two families bound by two generations in very different ways and have a lot of back story. One of the central characters, felt a bit like a copycat of Gaston Leroux's Frderick Larson character from the Mystery of the Yellow Room and it got to be a bit annoying for me by the end because they were so similar. Other than that I found the characters to be interesting and helped really understand the plot.

    Plot - It is definitely best read these in order as Christie often refers to characters and plot points from previous books throughout this series. The plot in this book seemed to remind me of a Sherlock Holmes plot but I'm not sure if it it actually mirrors one or just the tone was very similar. Overall it was a fascinating story and it kept me engaged and interested in the outcome. Not my favorite Poirot, but definitely one I enjoyed even the second or third time through.

    I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.

    Story
    "Too contrived"

    Normally I enjoy a good Agatha Christie, it is one of my "safe" choices for when I really want something to listen to and don't want to take a chance on trying something new, but this story was a bit too contrived. It was still tolerable to listen to, but not one of Christie's best.
