Publisher's Summary

The Leonides are one big happy family living in a sprawling, ramshackle mansion - until the head of the household, Aristide, is murdered with a fatal barbiturate injection.

Suspicion naturally falls on the old man's young widow, 50 years his junior. But the murderer hasn't reckoned on the tenacity of Charles Hayward, fiancé of the late millionaire's granddaughter.

    Story
    "Jolly good!"
    Any additional comments?

    Firstly, the actual story is a good one. This is one of the few Christie novels to have never recieved any adaptation and (don't worry, no spoilers) I can see why, the ending is a little strange. It has a slightly different scope to the other Christie novels I've read, seeming in my opinion, much more self contained. But it kept me gripped and listening intently!

    Hugh Fraser reads it brilliantly and has a lovely tone of voice. At times he reminded me of Stephen Fry.

    Story
    "Addictive, just like any other Christie"
    Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Hugh Fraser has become the definitive narrator for Christie's work to me. This one was wonderful as always.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I initially wasn't completely hooked. But the story gets better and better and I definitely didn't want to put it down after a while.

    Story
    "A cracking story"

    Once again Agatha Christie tells a cracking good tale with plenty of twists and turns. Hugh Fraser is so good as a narrator that one soon forgets there is only one person speaking and imagine a whole cast of characters. I heartily recommend this story, especially if on a long train journey.
