"The whole case is a triumph of Poirot's special qualities." (Times Literary Supplement
Hugh Fraser reads beautifully and this story is classic Agatha Christie with lots of red herrings and twists and turns. My one comment to audible.com is that around the 2.5 hour mark there was about 10 seconds of technical glitchery in which every second syllable was garbled.
Otherwise really really great.
This Agatha Christie novel is read by Hugh Fraser who plays Captain Hastings in the TV series Poirot. His talent of bringing the dialogues to life is outstanding. His ability to sound like Poirot, Inspector Japp, Captain Hastings and variety of female characters, as well as his ability to imitate various accents makes you feel you can see the protagonists in your mind's eye. This is a hugely enjoyable plot, with the usual Agatha Christie twists and turns, that keep you guessing to the end.
A real treat, and I will certainly be buying more books read by Hugh Fraser.

It was interesting to hear this case as I could remember the TV adaption at all so was fully in the edge of my seat as I worked on my uni work. I was not my favourite of Poirot's cases but I enjoyed it non the less.
Wonderful classic Christie with a deliciously awful villain that kept me guessing even when I 'knew' the answer.
Captain Hastings plays a big part as Poirot's sidekick and is decidedly unsycophantic. A very nice change.
Hugh Fraser did his brilliant job of narrating this story.
Agatha Christie did her brilliant job of keeping you guessing all the way through.
There were lots of twists and turns but this time I got there in the end and got there in the end and got the right culprit.
looking forward to listening to my next audio book.
