Never better audio of Christie Mystery

I am a great fan of Agatha Christie but have never heard such a great audio of her greatest mystery.

Perhaps because Alison Larkin was raised in England. And maybe because she has been a successful actress her accents are wonderful--and so authentic.

Most important Larkin brings each character and each dramatic turn in this exciting story to new life!

I am certain Agatha Christie would be delighted that such a talented and perfect narrator has been found for her brilliant work!
