Publisher's Summary

What is the connection between a failed suicide attempt, a wrongful accusation of theft against a schoolgirl, and the romantic life of a famous tennis player? To the casual observer, apparently nothing. But when a houseparty gathers at Gull's Point, the seaside home of an elderly widow, earlier events come to a dramatic head. It's all part of a carefully paid plan for murder.

Hugh Fraser + Agatha Christie = Fantastic

Hugh Fraser is a fantastic narrater and brings another of Agatha Christie's intruiging murder mysteries to life. Very entertaining and enjoyable.

Towards zero

Hugh Fraserburgh did a great job narrating this story he actually got you imagining that you were there well worth another listen to in the future.

Escapism in wartime - a world of cosy England

It is surprising to realise that this novel was published in 1944, but it does not take place in our space-time continuum, but in a well-to-do England which has not experienced the 14-18 war, let alone the rise of Fascism and the outbreak of war in ‘39.
It’s a fairly enjoyable fairy tale, with the usual crossed lovers and false trails.
Well narrated by Hugh Fraser, as we have learned to expect.

A not bad Agatha Christie

Hugh Fraser does a really good job on the voices. Nice twist in the tale... tail. Easy to listen to and a not at all well known story so nice to hear for the first time.
