A brilliant performance of a great story.

Any additional comments?

As an avid audiobook listener I think this may be the first Christie I have listened to. No surprises that Richard E Grant's performance is superb. At some points when I could not believe that he was creating all the voices. I would highly recommend this performance of this great murder mystery. Masterful!
