Publisher's Summary

Three young women share a London flat. The first is a coolly efficient secretary. The second is an artist. The third interrupts Hercule Poirot's breakfast, confessing that she is a murderer - and then promptly disappears.

Slowly, Poirot learns of the rumors surrounding the mysterious third girl, her family, and her disappearance. Yet hard evidence is needed before the great detective can pronounce her guilty, innocent, or insane.

    "An interesting girl"

    The narrator kept you interested by the different voices of each character. The plot was very complicated and complex. High quality well listen again.

    "Always an enjoyable listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Third Girl the most enjoyable?

    It is another delightful mystery romp with Hercule Poirot featuring mystery writer, Ariadne Oliver as Poirot's sidekick. And I always, always, enjoying Hugh Fraser's narration.


    Any additional comments?

    This is another interesting Christie novel. The book is set in the early 60's. I really enjoyed the interaction between Poirot and Ariadne Oliver

    "A bit confusing"

    The narration was great but the storyline was a bit confusing. Agatha has written better but would definitely listen to again.

    "Third Girl is First Rate!"

    Lots of suspects and plot twists. Hugh Fraser is his typical outstanding self. I could not put it down and listened to the whole volume in a single afternoon.

    "Loved this book"

    I had watched this first so even though I knew what would happen it did not make any difference the book was much better. This book felt more complicated than normal but I enjoyed the change.

    Story
    "A Man Reading An Authoress' Words"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Third Girl to be better than the print version?

    When a man reads the main character of a book authored by a woman it changes the tonality of the story and the character of the males.
    The authoress does no speak with a man's voice. I don't mean the pitch but the thought process, social influences etc. and points of view that effect how women look at he world and how men look at the world..
    I say that having read many if not most of Christie's books and I see, as a woman, a very different character for her male leads than the male readers portray.

    That and just the fact that women are not reading male authors and given the male leads a woman's interpretation. It would change the character.


    What three words best describe Hugh Fraser’s voice?

    It likely doesn't interpret the characters anything like Agatha Christie would sound reading her characters.
    Male read women characters as very stereotyped. Not like real people.
