Wonderful classic.

No one writes a murder better than Christie. Excellent narration by Emilia Fox. Great listen.

Horribly acted

For such a good actress Emilia Fox is atrocious at all accents and voices. All the male characters have raspy voices, the Americans are shrill, the Latinos are ridiculously lisping and the local Carribbean accents are so slow and sing song (occasionally breaking into Irish!) that I had to skip sections all together.

The story is good but probably the most easily guessed plot of all the Christie that I've read.
