Publisher's Summary

A classic Christie mystery. Read by Hugh Fraser who plays Hugh Fraser in the popular TV series. At a Hallowe’en party, Joyce – a hostile thirteen-year-old – boasts that she once witnessed a murder. When no-one believes her, she storms off home. But within hours her body is found, still in the house, drowned in an apple-bobbing tub. That night, Hercule Poirot is called in to find the ‘evil presence’. But first he must establish whether he is looking for a murderer or a double-murderer…

Excellent!

Hugh Fraser was magical as the narrator! And of course Agatha Christie is the greatest female murder mystery writer of our time!

Another good who-done-it

I am a big fan of Agatha Christie's novels. Hugh Fraser does a really good job of bringing the characters to life and telling this story with easy expertise.

One of my favourites.

Well narrated with great layers of moral questioning outside the basic plot. one of Christie's best.
