A brilliant performance of a great story.

Any additional comments?

As an avid audiobook listener I think this may be the first Christie I have listened to. No surprises that Richard E Grant's performance is superb. At some points when I could not believe that he was creating all the voices. I would highly recommend this performance of this great murder mystery. Masterful!

Superb performance

Richard E Grant is brilliant at narrating the couple of Miss Marple’s that I have listened to. I wish he had done more Agatha Christie books, he’s so very entertaining.
Excellent storyline as always.

Involving and keeps the suspense until the very end

I'm a big fan of Agatha Christie but had never read this book - it didn't disappoint with a great plot and build-up until the very end

Great storyline, and murders, Agatha Christie, got her twists, in everyone could of done, it but which one did and why?
