Publisher's Summary

Dr. Arthur Calgary takes a ferry across the Rubicon River to Sunny Point, the home of the Argyle family. A year before, the matriarch of the family was murdered, and a son, Jack, was convicted and sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison. Throughout the trial Jack had maintained his innocence, claiming he was hitchhiking on the night of the murder and he had been picked up by a middle-aged man in a dark car. Unable to locate this mystery man the police viewed Jack's story as a lie. Calgary was the stranger in question, but he arrives too late for Jack, who succumbs to pneumonia after serving just six months of his sentence. Feeling a sense of duty to the Argyles, Calgary is surprised when his revelation has a disturbing effect on the family: it means one of the family is a murderer.

Totally Perfect

Loved it. A real who's done it. One of Christies best murder mysteries I listened to in a long time.

Fantastic story with an unexpected ending

What did you like most about Ordeal by Innocence?

The totally unexpected ending. The story kept me guessing all the way through.

What did you like best about this story?

Hugh Fraser's narration. He is fantastic at bringing various characters to life through different voices.

Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've listened to lots of Hugh Fraser's audiobooks. He is, without doubt, one of the best narrators I have ever heard. This audiobook sustains that very high standard.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

At over 7 hours it's a bit much to listen to in one sitting! I like listening to them a bit at a time and trying to work out the mystery - I was miles off with this one!

Any additional comments?

If you haven't listened to a Hugh Fraser book before, don't be put off that this one doesn't have Poirot in it. It is still amazing.
