Yet, inside the hostile courtroom, one man still presumes Elinor is innocent until proven guilty: Hercule Poirot, who is all that stands between Elinor and the gallows.

"Poirot solves another exciting case." (Daily Mail)
Yes and I already have. Well told narrative, with excellent character profiling. A great tale by Agatha Christie.
Worth listening for its story and characters.
I'm keen to read more Christie for the setting, mystery, and characters.
David Suchet is excellent - I'm choosing Christie novels based on his brilliant performances! This one did not disappoint.
"Sad Cypress "
David Suchet did an outstanding job of narrating this audio book.
This was another one of my wild cards I'd sort of heard about it but couldn't remember any of it.
Agatha Christie did her normal trick of slipping in the odd twist and turns so you had no idea who was the culprit, I throughly enjoyed listening to the book and I'll definitely go for another wild cards gain I think I'm going to start collect the partners in crime next see what Agatha Christie can get up too with them.
It was classical hercule
It met my expectation however I still believe that Hugh Fraser should narrate the books. Suchet was good but sometimes distracting.
"Good story, poor performance."
I enjoyed the story a lot more than I thought. However, the poor quality of narration really spoiled it for me, especially with it being David Suchet whom I admire as an actor.
When the cunning of the murderer was revealed.
No. I liked the story but not that much.
I do wonder if the problem was with the narrator or a problem with the audio recording itself.
David Suchet is a surprisingly bad narrator. He is a wonderful Poirot, or course, but his voice for other characters is very poor, stilted, accents weak. Not a patch on Hugh Fraser's narration.
Excellent story but David Suchet is thoroughly irritating - the last word of a sentence disappears and the rhythm of sentences is idiosyncratic. The use of falsetto is not much of a pleasure, either.
