"Past and present interlock impressively...this is a genuine tour de force." (Observer)
"The Beresfords are wonderfully revived. Smooth, beautifully paced, and effortlessly convincing." (The New York Times)
I am a great agatha christie however this one was just too old on many levels..constant conversation between the husband and wife sleuths..and in the end there was no point trying to work out 'who dun it' as agatha just introduced a random person in the end who was the murderer...very hard to stay involved
"Not up to standard"
This book tends to discuss previous Tommy and Tuppence book N or M, I would change the continued reference to that previous case and how it was solved. Luckily I had already read N or M, but if I had not it would have really spoiled that book.
I did not feel Hugh Fraser was up to his usual standards. He tended to use the same tone of voice for some of the characters and it took some concentration to hear which character was which.
I found the bases of the storyline was good and there are some ingenious ideas, but I did not find it as good as Christie's other works.
"Postern of Fate"
Agarha Christies Tommy & Tuppence series, 1st one I've ever listened to it, had all the best things Agatha Christie, has to offer. , I really enjoyed this audible book, it gives you a idea of what people did behind the scenes, to help with the war effort
as always Hugh Fraser makes you think you are listening to a full cast recording.
