Publisher's Summary

Strapped by a chauffeur's wages, Michael Rogers' want of a better life seems out of reach. Especially elusive is a magnificent piece of property in Kingston Bishop - until a chance meeting with a beautiful heiress makes his dreams possible. Marrying her is the first step. Building the perfect home is the next. Unfortunately Michael ignored the local warnings about the deadly curse buried in the tract of land, and living out his dreams may exact a higher price than he ever imagined.

Praised as one of Agatha Christie's most unusual forays into Gothic psychological suspense, this novel of fate, chance, and the nature of evil was a personal favorite of the author's as well.

Unusual

Very different from the usual style and plotting of an Agatha Christie novel. This is dark and, IMHO, rather unpleasant. And, unfortunately, it wasn't very suspenseful; it seemed that Dame Agatha, nearing the end of her long careers, was borrowing / recycling plot twists from previous stories. I credit her with trying something different, even if it didn't work for me. As always, Hugh Fraser's narration was excellent.

Not A Typical Agatha Christie

interesting story. Not a typical Agatha Christie. Story line doesn't follow the usual mystery structure of a murder committed and several suspects. No detective unravelling the crime. More like you can't run away from your inner self, even when given the chance. I wasn't expecting the ending. A true psychological mystery with a twist.

Tour de Force

Agatha Christie turns in a deep psychological mystery, her grandson's favorite of her works, which is why I read it. Darker than her others and a masterful delineation of the human heart. But I must talk about the masterful performance of Hugh Fraser. He plays the slightly dense sidekick of David Suchet's Poirot. He seamlessly transforms his voice from Englishman to American and male to female and young to old in such a convincing manner that the listener is never jarred out of the story. Most especially, his female depictions don't sound like a drag queen in a comedy show, but a believable human being, and switches back to the Englishman, etc. Such skill and talent. Far above anything I have heard on Audible.

Classic Christie with a twist!

Terrific Christie novel -- thoroughly enjoyed it! I missed this one long ago, so it was an extra treat. Hugh Fraser is the perfect narrator as always. This one ends with a bit of a twist that I didn't see coming -- always a great surprise!!

True and well versed fans only...

I feel fairly conflicted about this story. To tell you the absolute truth, I've listened to over 25 of Agatha Christie's stories and this one threw me for a loop. I know that she is a great storyteller.I trust that she knows what she's doing but, I had a hard time holding on for this tale. I had many bones to pick with this story but, those who persevere and hold out I feel that the last few chapters of this tale really make up for the rest. I feel that this an example of an author reaching and trying to do new things.

SPOILER ALERT: Great but doesn’t make sense a the end

SPOILER ALERT:
It is great but should have the bad thoughts at the end showed up in the beginning of we are being told about his thoughts?
