Publisher's Summary

An urgent cry for help brings Poirot to France. But he arrives too late to save his client, whose brutally stabbed body now lies face downwards in a shallow grave on a golf course.

But why is the dead man wearing his son's overcoat? And who was the impassioned love-letter in the pocket for? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse...

absolutely brilliant

I'm actually becoming obsessed with Agatha Christie🤣 I finished all of the miss Marple stories in about a week and a half during lockdown. I then took a break from christie and listened to the complete collection of sherlock Holmes before returning once more to the queen of crime. I wasnt sure about Poirot as I was worried he'd be a slimy, pretentious bigot as so many male detectives in that time were. I needn't have worried, however, as Agatha Christie is too brilliant a writer for that. I definitely recommend this and all other of her books wholeheartedly and hope you enjoy them just as much as I have. I am increasingly aware that I seen to be morphing into a grandmother type as I listen to these stories while drinking tea and knitting, despite being 15 but do you know what? Hell said the duchess:). This story is just as excellent and thrilling as any other by Christie so please settle down with a nice cuppa, looking out into the autumn evening and listen to this wonderful tale.

Great story, perfectly narrated

What a wonderful story, read by Hastings himself (Hugh Fraser). I love his narration, and despite there being many native French speakers among the characters, it was always easy to know who was speaking.

Agetha at her best

A really good mystery. Hadn't seen this one on TV , so I was clueless as to the murderer right to the reveal. Hugh Fraser is the perfect narrator, and I loved listening to him.
