Publisher's Summary

Thirteen guests arrived at dinner at the actor's house. It was to be a particularly unlucky evening for the mild-mannered Reverend Stephen Babbington, who choked on his cocktail, went into convulsions and died. But when his martini glass was sent for chemical analysis, there was no trace of poison, just as Poirot had predicted. Even more troubling for the great detective, there was absolutely no motive.

Typical Christie, interesting structure.

A fairly typical Agatha Christie novel in which the characters don't seem terribly surprised or distressed by the sudden death of one of their dinner-party companions. The "theatrical" structure is interesting, but the outcome seems pretty obvious by today's standards. Poirot plays a relatively minor part in the story. Quality narration by Hugh Fraser. Would recommend for Christie fans.

Never tired of listening

Surprisingly there is no much of Poirot in the story but still it is work of A. Christie to wich one I like to come back.
