The delivery and performance is absolutely spot on. It's not one of Christie's best works but Suchet makes it worth a listen. Slow in places but a good afternoon listen.
Shame Hugh Fraser hadn’t narrated this. I haven’t seen more than a few minutes in passing of the TV adaptations with David Suchet and HF, so I don’t have any preconception that HF is “only” the dim stooge to DS.
DS makes many voices comic, exaggerated, even for light fiction like this. Still I don’t like much of the current ultra-violent crime fiction, especially as bedtime listening. Far better a sanitised assassination of an unpleasant person with a minimum of gore.
