Publisher's Summary

An urgent cry for help brings Poirot to France. But he arrives too late to save his client, whose brutally stabbed body now lies face downwards in a shallow grave on a golf course.

But why is the dead man wearing his son's overcoat? And who was the impassioned love-letter in the pocket for? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse...

absolutely brilliant

I'm actually becoming obsessed with Agatha Christie🤣 I finished all of the miss Marple stories in about a week and a half during lockdown. I then took a break from christie and listened to the complete collection of sherlock Holmes before returning once more to the queen of crime. I wasnt sure about Poirot as I was worried he'd be a slimy, pretentious bigot as so many male detectives in that time were. I needn't have worried, however, as Agatha Christie is too brilliant a writer for that. I definitely recommend this and all other of her books wholeheartedly and hope you enjoy them just as much as I have. I am increasingly aware that I seen to be morphing into a grandmother type as I listen to these stories while drinking tea and knitting, despite being 15 but do you know what? Hell said the duchess:). This story is just as excellent and thrilling as any other by Christie so please settle down with a nice cuppa, looking out into the autumn evening and listen to this wonderful tale.

Great Poirot!

I loved it. Regarding thw narration, the accent is sometimes a little uneven and I guessed for a second or two if Poirot or Hastings was supposed to be talking but the context soon helped. The French names could have been pronounced a little clearer (Giraud sometimes sounded like Giroux and Daubreuil like Debreuil). But really it was great narrating and moreover an amazing storyline. Pure Agatha Christie.

classic agatha Christie

Hugh Fraser is a bit limited as a narrator but as you naturally associate him as Captain Hastings it's fine.

too contrived

this was the first AC I ever read and I wanted to revisit it. it's just not as good as later ones. the plot is too complex, the characterisation almost childlike in its cliche. recently did 5 pigs and 1, 2 shoe much, much better. narration good but French accents not best.

Captain Hastings Falls in Love!

I am a great Poirot and Hugh Fraser fan but I struggled with this audiobook. I lost count of the number of times I had to restart the book as I lost interest and my thread.
Having said that the last third of the book was better and worth reading just for the episode between Hastings and Poirot in Chapter 22 (shades of homo-erotic!?!). Wonderful for Poirot fans.
