The Queen of Crime at her peak.
I love Hugh Fraser's performance of the world's greatest detective. I like him more than David Suchet on audio.
As with most of Dame Agatha's books I like the twists and her reliable cast of characters.
The listener truely gets a sense of how Perot feels about himself. Mr. Fraser makes you love him in spite of his arrogance and pompous nature.
Every fan of this author loves the "Agatha Christie Moment". That part of the book where all the characters are gathered and the detective procedes to explain the crime and expose the wrong doer.
While I highly recommend this and all of Agatha Christie's books, if you are new to this author I recommend "The ABC Murders" first.
Hugh Fraser is such a wonderful Poirot!
