The Queen of Crime at her peak.

What did you love best about Three Act Tragedy?

I love Hugh Fraser's performance of the world's greatest detective. I like him more than David Suchet on audio.

What did you like best about this story?

As with most of Dame Agatha's books I like the twists and her reliable cast of characters.

What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

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.

Any additional comments?

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!

I've heard a few different narrations of Poirot but Hugh is my absolute favorite! He really does a great job! The story didn't interest in me in the beginning but got interesting as it went along.
