    "An entertaining mystery from the 1930's"

    This is an excellent Agatha Christie novel, with Hercule Poirot as the investigator of a possible murder. The story flows so well that it illustrates why the author was so successful. It is a story set in the late 1920's or early 1930’s ( I think) with all of the sensibilities of that era. There were many red herrings, so I did not predict the solution, but the explanation made sense and was therefore completely satisfying. The narration, by High Fraser, was good and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the novel.

    "A cracking detective novel"

    Perfect for a long journey on a winter's day, Dumb Witness makes the time fly. Bob, the 'dumb witness' of the title, made a far better detective than I did and I needed Hercule's elegant expose at the end to let me into the secret of 'who dunnit'! Most enjoyable.

    "Thoroughly enjoyed!"

    I really enjoyed this audio book. As ever, Hugh Fraser provides an outstanding performance and acts out all the parts with incredible skill and versatility. Rather spooky at times and I loved Bob.
    ( no spoilers!)

    Dame Agatha takes us on a fantastic journey with such ease, I wanted to listen to it in one go but would have meant a few "duvet days"!

    Outstanding thriller, exceptionally delivered.

    Enjoy....

    "Feeble plot, not one of her best."
    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointing plot, very thin and contrived, with none of the usual twists and turns for which Christie is so famous.
