Publisher's Summary

Christmas Eve, and the Lee family's reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture and a high-pitched wailing scream. Upstairs, the tyrannical Simeon Lee lies dead in a pool of blood, his throat slashed.
When Hercule Poirot 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....
This title was previously published as Murder for Christmas and A Holiday for Murder.

Audio adds to a terrific mystery!!

A closed room murder, a family gathering at Christmas, and Poirot's little gray cells at work, what more is needed for a good Christmas mystery! The reading of this mystery made a good story great!!

Typically enjoyable Poirot

This was a classic Poirot story with an engaging plot. I did not suspect who the murderer was until Poirot gathered everyone together to unraveled the clues. I had carefully considered the clues and accused the wrong character.

I loved that Hugh Fraser, who played Hastings in several Poirot movies, read the story. He met the demands of each character's personality.
