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.
Hugh Fraser did his brilliant narrating of the audio book.
I've heard of this book but never got around to reading it, I'm glad I've now listened to it and I throughly enjoyed it. As normal I didn't get the right culprit but I did get the right reasons.
I'm looking forward to hearing the next book I think it's going to be The Sad Cypress look out for my comment.
