"Makes uncommonly good reading." (The New York Times)
A fairly typical Agatha Christie novel in which the characters don't seem terribly surprised or distressed by the sudden death of one of their dinner-party companions. The "theatrical" structure is interesting, but the outcome seems pretty obvious by today's standards. Poirot plays a relatively minor part in the story. Quality narration by Hugh Fraser. Would recommend for Christie fans.
Surprisingly there is no much of Poirot in the story but still it is work of A. Christie to wich one I like to come back.
just before shutting down for supper they all had a cocktail, two had not had them before so tried one of them. Less than 5 minutes later one party members is dead.
