Publisher's Summary

Luke Fitzwilliam could not believe Miss Pinkerton's wild allegation that a multiple murderer was at work in the quiet English village of Wychwood, or her speculation that the local doctor was next in line. But, within hours, Miss Pinkerton had been killed in a hit-and-run car accident. Mere coincidence? Luke was inclined to think so, until he read in The Times of the unexpected demise of Dr Humbleby.

Critic Reviews

"Suspense, mystery, romance, and an agreeable touch of the macabre." (Guardian)

"Contains some clever plotting and enough casting of suspicion to keep you guessing like mad." (Books)

"One of Agatha Christie's best mystery novels, a story fascinating in its plot, clever and lively in its characters, and brilliant in its technique." (New York Times)

Hugh Fraser, always a pleasure

Another book that I am sure I will listen to over and over again. Luke Fitzwilliam is no Poirot or Marple but the story is enjoyable all the same. Hugh Fraser is for me the best narrator of Christie stories. I hope to have every one in my collection over time.

Superb Christie

Great story excellently narration by Hugh Frazier. Highly recommend this to any Agatha Christie fan. Hugh Fraser should narrate all her novels. He has a lot except ‘Death on the Nile’ Listening to him narrate is a joy. So come on Audible, ask him to narrate Death On The Nile. I would highly recommend this title however especially if you’re new to Agatha Christie. A real who done it. And you’ll never guess who!!!

Excellent Narration

Hugh Fraser is an excellent narrator. I actually forgot there was only one person reading all the parts - each character was so individual. The plot was entertaining and with Hugh Fraser at the helm, the hours just flew by.

Much better than Itv adaption, good story, differ

This is a whole different story, different killer, different motive to TV Adaptation. Much better story. ITV were obsessed with kesbians when they adapted this great book. Listen to this instead.
