Publisher's Summary

A classic Christie mystery. Read by Hugh Fraser who plays Hugh Fraser in the popular TV series. At a Hallowe’en party, Joyce – a hostile thirteen-year-old – boasts that she once witnessed a murder. When no-one believes her, she storms off home. But within hours her body is found, still in the house, drowned in an apple-bobbing tub. That night, Hercule Poirot is called in to find the ‘evil presence’. But first he must establish whether he is looking for a murderer or a double-murderer…

    "Excellent!"

    Hugh Fraser was magical as the narrator! And of course Agatha Christie is the greatest female murder mystery writer of our time!

    "Another good who-done-it"

    I am a big fan of Agatha Christie's novels. Hugh Fraser does a really good job of bringing the characters to life and telling this story with easy expertise.

    "Dull"

    Very slow and repetitive, too much irrelevant stuff. First time I've been bored by an Agatha Christie!

    "Good, but slightly predicatable"

    Unfortunately, while I love the Poirot books, I do feel as Christie got older her creative imagination did falter a little, and I was able to half guess the solution about half way through which is a cardinal sin for a detective novel; the reader should never feel more intelligent than Poirot! However, you may have noticed I said half guessed as there was still a little twist, and therefore I still rate this reasonably.

    "Outstanding!"

    Hugh Fraser demonstrates great vocal talents and brings the characters to life in this version - without the full cast recording.

    My first listen to this particular mystery and a great treat it was.

    I thoroughly recommend it if you are looking for a relaxing afternoon/ evening with familiar characters you look forward to meeting again.
