"Her gift is pure genius." (Observer)
"An amusing, exciting, well-written story." (Outlook)
"All signs indicate that Mrs Christie has been reading P.G. Wodehouse, and she does it very well in spots. This is her gayest thriller and mustn't be missed." (Books)

An absolutely excellent reading of an Agatha Christie mystery. Emilia Fox is superb at clear characterisation and the pace is spot on. The audio quality was consistent and clear throughout, with no noticible changes of pace or style.
I had not read this book before so the audio version was a delight, with Christie providing a 'subtle'plot. :-> Plenty of characters, some intersting locations and more red herrings than a Finish dinner party. Audio perfection!
"Another car journey made interesting"
I really enjoyed listening to this as I drove to and from my brother's house. It's a light hearted Agatha Christie with a strong female lead. I thought I knew who had done it, changed my mind, and then found out I was right all along. The very end was a bit of a surprise, though. It is read clearly and with expression
"The Seven Dials Mystery "
It was fantastic, it totally had me gripped, from start to finish.
As normal, whenever you think you've sorted it out, that person is murdered.....
"Not Agatha's best"
No. I don't believe it is to Agatha Christie's usual standard and rather point a friend to some of her better mystery novels.
Another of Agatha's novels.
"Not a good Christie story, and not well read!"
I have listened to nearly all the Agatha Christie books available onAudible, and this one is nothing like as interesting as most of the others - it seems more like a Famous Five mystery than a whodunnit for adults, and Emilia Fox's reading of it only exaggerates the feeling that you're listening to a very dated children's story.
I have heard other performances by Emilia Fox which are much better.
"Emilia Fox was excellent!"
I had my doubts as to how well Emilia Fox would read this. But she was excellent.
The story was gripping and fun. She really made the characters come to life and added humour to those characters.
Story ok but awful awful narration , probably would've been better done by a male actor
loved it, a different Christie, focusing on the young and fresh-faced youth involved in a deadly secret society with humour romance and murder thrown in!
loved it, on the edge of your seat and you never will guess who done it.
"One of her best"
Gripping story. Didn't know where it was going. Loved it, good characterisation and strong female lead
