©1937 Agatha Christie Mallowan; (P)2002 HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, London UK
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.
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.
Storyline was brilliant and well narrated by Hugh Fraser. He really brought the book to life .
Agatha Christie did her fantastic job of keeping you guessing all the way through and I thought I'd worked it out then she put another twist in so I got it completely wrong yet again,.
