Publisher's Summary

Mr. Shaitana is famous as a flamboyant party host. Nevertheless, he is a man of whom everybody is a little afraid. So when he boasts to Hercule Poirot that he considers murder an art form, the detective has some reservations about accepting a party invitation to view Shaitana's "private collection".
Indeed, what begins as an absorbing evening of bridge is to turn into a more dangerous game altogether.

this is a great Christie mystery

Some of Agatha Christie's mysteries are more about characters and some are more about mystery, and this is one of the latter. That's not to say that the characters are poor, only that the mystery itself takes center stage. It's a real whodunnit: A dinner party includes 4 criminals, whom the host claims to know have each gotten away with murder, and 4 sleuths, both professionals and amateurs......and while the 4 criminals are in a room playing bridge, one of them quietly and secretly murders the host. Whodunnit, and how will Poirot figure it out? Keep listening and find out.

Hugh Fraser does a terrific job, as I've enjoyed in the past.

All the scenes with Ariana Oliver ( Agatha Christie making fun of her image)

Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Hugh Fraser is one reason to listen. He's fabulous !
