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.
"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.
