Ten strangers are lured to an isolated island mansion off the Devon coast by a mysterious "U.N. Owen". At dinner a recorded message accuses each of them in turn of having a guilty secret, and by the end of the night one of the guests is dead. Stranded by a violent storm, and haunted by a nursery rhyme counting down one by one...one by one they begin to die. Who among them is the killer? And will any of them survive?

Agatha Christie, of course, is the mistress of mystery. This book has a breathtaking fear-factor that Dan Stevens aptly narrates. His characterization is done well and he presents the book very well.

Each year, wild ponies on Assateague Island are rounded up and coaxed across a narrow strip of ocean to Chincoteague Island. There, to thin out the herds, they are sold. The ponies are shaggy and untamed, but one of them has captured the hearts of a young boy and his sister. As Pony Penning Day dawns, the two children hope that they can capture the Phantom, buy her, and lead her home.

I grew up reading and listening to this book. John McDonough does a great job bringing the characters to life!

Ever since he became a Christian at the age of 40, it has been Poirot actor David Suchet's dream to make an audio recording of the whole Bible. In between filming the final episodes of Poirot, David Suchet spent over 200 hours in the recording studio to create the very first full-length audio version of the NIV Bible spoken by a single British actor.

I listened to many samples of Bible narration before hearing this. As soon as I heard the sample, I fell in love with it! David Suchet reads well, I hear a difference in characterization, but it is not over the top to detract from the Bible reading.
