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!
