Publisher's Summary

Nick Buckley was an unusual name for a pretty young woman. But then she had led an unusual life. First, on a treacherous Cornish hillside, the brakes on her car failed. Then, on a coastal path, a falling boulder missed her by inches. Later, an oil painting fell and almost crushed her in bed. Upon discovering a bullet-hole in Nick's sun hat, Hercule Poirot decides the girl needs his protection. At the same time, he begins to unravel the mystery of a murder that hasn't been committed. Yet.

    "Another Christie Classic!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Highly recommended! Another Agatha Christie classic with so many twists and turns that even Poirot's baffled! The David Suchet TV adaptation of this book follows the Christie book closely, unlike some others, so if you are a fan of the TV programmes you will love this audiobook! An must for every Christie fan!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hastings as always is my favourite character. The perfect sidekick to Poirot. Made even better when the audiobook is read by Hugh Fraser!


    Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    As always a great performance by Hugh Fraser, he seems to understand Agatha Christie and particularly Poirot so well. This is definitely up there with his best, although "The Big Four" is my personal favourite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I tend not to listen to any audiobook in one session, so no it wasn't.

    "Peril at end House"

    Poor Poriot, will he ever, get a chance of having a murder free holiday?
    A damsel, in distress, how can he resist? He gets conflicting testimonials from people, which got him frustrated and confused was someone trying to kill her, or was she lying if she was lying then why........

    "Fab!!!!"

    Loved it, so many twists and turns as I did some sewing, my dining room curtains may have wobbles in the hem as I kept stopping to say "oh I never expected that....hmmmm"
    Hugh Fraser is as ever perfect, absolutely love his narration , he acts the characters so well, with warmth and humour. Recommend for Agatha fans of old and those just embarking on the intriguing world of Dame Christie, enjoy.

    Story
    "Very enjoyable listen, Narrator excellent,"
    Where does Peril at End House rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As a recent member I was impressed by the quality and versatility of the Narration. The story was a typical Agatha Christie, and I still couldn't guess "who did it"


    What other book might you compare Peril at End House to and why?

    I have not listened to many stories yet, other than Sherlock Holmes, and they both have been good so it is difficult to compare them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I was caught into all of the scenes, but I think the a scene in the last chapter caught my imagination the most.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    not really, as Murder Mysteries, don't tend to be that way inclined


    Any additional comments?

    Just a very good way to occupy ones time when one is busy with hand work, most enjoyable, the work just gets done.!!!!

    Story
    "A Sting in the Tale!"
    What other book might you compare Peril at End House to and why?

    This is Agatha Christie at her very best! A wonderful mind bender that keeps one guessing!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Poirot's final summing up, always surprising, this time he outdid himself.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    In book full of twists, turns, liars and cheats, I was more manipulated than moved. Great fun. This is a wonderful story, well read by Hugh Fraser.

    "So did not expect that ending"

    Some times I get who it was that did it, but not this one ... an ending that I didn't expect ... was an interesting book to listen too ... well worth the money.
