Hercule Poirot is asked to investigate the death of a heavily-insured country squire whose estate is in financial ruin. The man is deemed to have committed suicide, which would negate his insurance policy. Upon investigating Poirot is certain that the case is murder, and goes about trying to prove his theory.
Another Agatha Christie short story. Oh how I enjoy them!! Poirot is his crafty, cocky self in this one as he tries to frame the murderer. In fact he is very dramatic about it all, which suits Poirot's personality to a tea.
I listened on audio, and I would highly recommend it. The high drama in this short story is certainly suited to the audio.

This is narrated by David Suchet NOT Hugh Fraser!
What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
David Suchet is an excellent narrator. He reads Poirot perfectly. I also like Hugh Fraser, for different reasons, but this is not Hugh Fraser.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
