Summary

Among the towering red cliffs of Petra, like some monstrous swollen Buddha, sat the corpse of Mrs Boynton. A tiny puncture mark on her wrist was the only sign of the fatal injection that had killed her.

Hugh Fraser brilliant as always!

A great story that leaves you guessing. Hugh Fraser's narration is perfect as always and he does a great Poirot.

A gripping tale of 'mother love'!

I found this totally unputdownable!!! It is one the best audio books that I have ever listened to and has already become one of my most played. It is performed with insight, skill and an obvious love for Christies written word. Download it and be prepared to shiver!!
