Publisher's Summary

Recently, there had been some strange goings on at Styles St Mary. Evelyn, constant companion to old Mrs Inglethorp, had stormed out of the house muttering something about "a lot of sharks". And with her, something indefinable had gone from the atmosphere. Her presence had spelt security; now the air seemed rife with suspicion and impending evil.

Enjoyable.

I found this book to be a pleasant way to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon, in the garden.

Agatha you genius

What a great start to the legacy of Poirot. And the skills of a genius like Agatha to bring him to life. Well narrated and enjoy!

Fabulous audiobook

Hugh Fraser's excellent characterisation of Poirot's first outing is superb. A very enjoyable story from start to finish!

One of the best

Loved the story and the characters. Hugh Fraser is a fantastic reader as usual. I was hooked from the beginning and didn't guess the ending at all!
