A great narrator? 'Hugh' bet!

A cracking mystery made all the more enjoyable by the talents of Hugh Fraser as narrator. Definitely one I will come back to.

An entertaining mystery from the 1930's

This is an excellent Agatha Christie novel, with Hercule Poirot as the investigator of a possible murder. The story flows so well that it illustrates why the author was so successful. It is a story set in the late 1920's or early 1930’s ( I think) with all of the sensibilities of that era. There were many red herrings, so I did not predict the solution, but the explanation made sense and was therefore completely satisfying. The narration, by High Fraser, was good and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the novel.
