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.

"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.
Hugh Fraser did his normal brilliant job of bringing this book alive..
I'd never heard of this book but was intrigued by it.
The storyline was brilliant, it had youu oked from the beginning to the end.
Agatha Christie did her brilliant job of keeping you guessing all the way through.
we another great book to listen to.
"Not a classic"
Some lovely descriptions of Ariadne and Poirot, but a silly story line. Not one of Agatha Christie's best crime novels.
"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.
"Not third rate!"
Among the Agatha Christie novels I would rate it high.
I enjoyed this story because of the detail that went with setting up the murders and the complexity of uncovering who committed them.
I have listened to many of Hugh Fraser's excellent performances and found this narration just as good as his others.
"Great later Christie"
murder, insanity, sixties
The pale horse - similar period with settings in London.
Hugh Fraser does Ariadne Oliver very well.
