Short but great

When I settled down to listen to this I initially wished that I'd paid attention to how short it is before using up a credit. In the end, I enjoyed it enough to not care. It has a sense of humour that I haven't noticed in other Agatha Christie productions but did notice in the only book of hers I've actually read - The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. It makes me think I should read more of her books! Great short story.

love it

This is a great Pyne case, that is brilliantly after and produced. You will chuckle as the lead character gets what he has asked for. highly recommended.
