Calgary was the stranger in question, but he arrives too late for Jack, who succumbs to pneumonia after serving just six months of his sentence. Feeling a sense of duty to the Argyles, Calgary is surprised when his revelation has a disturbing effect on the family: it means one of the family is a murderer.

"Not an ordeal to listen to!"
Yes. It is nice to listen to a story and hear how the narrator portrays each character. Hugh is an excellent narrator.
I like Leo Argyle. Although he is broken after Rachel's death he remained a pillar for his family.
I have listened to most of his Agatha Christie novels and have enjoyed them. This was one of his best performances.
Everybody makes mistakes, but some mistakes are deadly.
"Fantastic story with an unexpected ending"
The totally unexpected ending. The story kept me guessing all the way through.
Hugh Fraser's narration. He is fantastic at bringing various characters to life through different voices.
I've listened to lots of Hugh Fraser's audiobooks. He is, without doubt, one of the best narrators I have ever heard. This audiobook sustains that very high standard.
At over 7 hours it's a bit much to listen to in one sitting! I like listening to them a bit at a time and trying to work out the mystery - I was miles off with this one!
If you haven't listened to a Hugh Fraser book before, don't be put off that this one doesn't have Poirot in it. It is still amazing.
Hugh Fraser really is such a great narrator. Brilliant story, brilliantly read.
