Publisher's Summary

Well, it's no wonder. The plot - suspicion for an elderly woman's murder falls on her mysterious lodger - is from Agatha Christie. The wonderful character happens to be the world's most famous sleuth, Hercule Poirot.

A Hercule Poirot and Ariadne Oliver Mystery

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I really did not know who the murderer was until the very end.

What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really enjoy Hugh Fraser's narration of the Agatha Christie books. He reads well and his voice is pleasant.

Any additional comments?

This is the second book Christie wrote featuring fictional mystery writer Ariadne Oliver. I noticed in this book that Agatha Christie gave Poirot a sense of humor.

Poirot at his finest.

This is one of Christie's best novels. Poirot is brilliant and engaging, the mystery is thoughful, the characters are from Dame Agatha's usual repertoire, but I love them and the ending is most unpredictable.
