Publisher's Summary

It is Christmas Eve. The Lee family reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture, followed by a high-pitched wailing scream. Upstairs, the tyrannical Simeon Lee lies dead in a pool of blood, his throat slashed. But when Hercule Poirot, who is staying in the village with a friend for Christmas, offers to assist, he finds an atmosphere not of mourning but of mutual suspicion. It seems everyone had their own reason to hate the old man.

A good read

Hugh Fraser is a very good narrator, he brings the book to life. It is a good story, it's not my favourite Poirot book but it is an interesting plot and I am happy to return to this story from time to time.

Unusual and full of red herrings

Really enjoyed this. A fan of interesting crime - Agatha Christie, Dick Francis and the like, this was a new Poirot story to me. Full of twists and turns and the interesting group scene at the end where all is revealed. I didn't guess although as usual, all the clues were there if you just realised! Read well and with style. I would listen to another.
