Just too incredible to satisfy. More like an absurd B-movie than the complex measured tales of her later years.

Would you try another book from Agatha Christie and/or Hugh Fraser?
Yes. This book was one odd failure in the Christie collection.
Any additional comments?
I thought the reviewers who made bad comments about this book must have been mistaken. Not so. Hugh Fraser's performance was excellent, but even the best reader couldn't make the ridiculous plot less ridiculous. It was a James Bond fantasy starring Hercule Poirot, a character that doesn't fit at all. The whole thing was silly without humor. This was my ninth Christie listen, all the rest very good to excellent stories. I still want to hear more Poirot mysteries, and will bet on the fact that Christie didn't repeat the mistake she made with this one.
