Publisher's Summary

Three single girls shared the same London flat. The first worked as a secretary; the second was an artist; the third, who came to Poirot for help, disappeared, convinced she was a murderer.

Now there were rumours of revolvers, flick-knives, and blood stains. But, without hard evidence, it would take all Poirot's tenacity to establish whether the third girl was guilty, innocent - or insane.

    "Excellent"

    Narrated brilliantly by Hugh Fraser as always. Slightly unusual style of plot for Poirot. Highly recommended

    "A good mystery"
    If you could sum up Third Girl in three words, what would they be?

    Jolly good mystery


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot remained a mystery until the end.


    What about Hugh Fraser’s performance did you like?

    Hugh Fraser is always pleasant to listen to. The characters are easy to differentiate, and he reads clearly.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I enjoy Agatha Christies stories, and her characters are people it's easy to feel sympathy with.


    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "A clever plot ...."

    Christie at her best I think. It really made me think. The narrative is lovely really bringing Hercule and Mrs Oliver to life.

    A comfortable and relaxing tale with a delicious splash of violence.

    "Not a classic"

    Some lovely descriptions of Ariadne and Poirot, but a silly story line. Not one of Agatha Christie's best crime novels.

    Story
    "Another cracking 1960s whodunit by Agatha Christie"

    Agatha Christie wrote her stories from the 1920s through to the 1970s - hard to imagine when so many of the television adaptations are permanently set in the thirties or Fifties! Many of her stories written and set in the 1960s give a lot of local colour as well as be good stories. Ok. So there are always a few 'far-fetched' elements (including wigs - I'll say no more) but all in all a cracking story and once again excellently narrated by Hugh Fraser.

    Story
    "Not third rate!"
    Where does Third Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the Agatha Christie novels I would rate it high.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed this story because of the detail that went with setting up the murders and the complexity of uncovering who committed them.


    Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to many of Hugh Fraser's excellent performances and found this narration just as good as his others.

    Story
    "Great later Christie"
    If you could sum up Third Girl in three words, what would they be?

    murder, insanity, sixties


    What other book might you compare Third Girl to, and why?

    The pale horse - similar period with settings in London.


    Which character – as performed by Hugh Fraser – was your favourite?

    Hugh Fraser does Ariadne Oliver very well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely
