    "Great story, pity about the reading."

    A real cracker of a mystery, though with the usual Christie contrivances sometimes being a little too contrived, but never mind, it's crime fiction that does exactly what it should - entertain and intrigue. My main disappointment was in the voice of Emilia Fox, an actor I respect very highly having seen her always brilliant TV and film performances. Here, however, I found her attempts at the different voices rather over-played and in the longer dialogues positively irritating depending on the character being portrayed. Frankie's voice in particular got so much on my nerves that I often scrolled forward a little, sometimes at the expense of missing a valuable line of plot. But then I found the character of Frankie fairly irritating anyway! However all this did not deter me from listening right to the end - I was far too eager to discover the identity of 'Evans'!

    "Superb reading"

    This is a great book by Christie and transferred well to audio. Emilia Fox reads beautifully and with such excellent character definitions. The quality is good, the pace perfect and the story is exciting and humorous as it twists and turns towards the conclusion.
