Publisher's Summary

As instructed, stenographer Sheila Webb let herself into the house at 19 Wilbraham Crescent. It was then that she made a grisly discovery: the body of a dead man sprawled across the living-room floor.What intrigued Poirot about the case was the time factor. Although in a state of shock, Sheila clearly remembered having heard a cuckoo clock strike 3.00. Yet, the four other clocks in the living room all showed the time as 4.13. Even more strange: only one of these clocks belonged to the owner of the house.

Disappointing

The aging Hercule Poirot makes guest appearances as an armchair consultant, but since the other two detectives are quite charmless, this isn't Agatha Christie's most interesting work. Rather disappointed.

Christie does it again

Once again Agatha doesn't disappoint with this cracking read. I found this one a little easier to unfold as the plot went along and I did guess the end but that didn't detract from the overall enjoyment.
Audio quality was good and the narration up to the usual expected standards.

Agatha Christie at her best

I have recently been re-listening to Agatha Christie novels. I am especially a fan of the great Hugh Fraser reading the books. In 'The Clocks' you are left guessing until the end. I recommend this!
