Publisher's Summary

To understand the strange goings on at The Pale Horse Inn, Mark Easterbrook knew he had to begin at the beginning. But where exactly was the beginning?

Was it the savage blow to the back of Father Gorman's head? Or was it when the priest's assailant searched him so roughly, he tore the clergyman's cassock? Or could it have been the priest's visit, just minutes before, to a woman on her deathbed? Or was there a deeper significance to the violent squabble that Mark Easterbrook had himself witnessed earlier?

Wherever the beginning lies, Mark and his sidekick, Ginger Corrigan, may soon have cause to wish they'd never found it.

    "Another great Agatha Christie!"

    Another great story from Agatha Christie. One of the things I found interesting about this is the contemporary details as to 1960s fashion and appearance. Was this simply the main character's view or was it Christie's as well? A good who (and how) dunnit!

    "Wonderful"

    Hugh Fraser does Agatha Christie proud with this performance.

    Better as an unabridged version, don't know why others have played with it before, it's great as it is.

    "Outstanding performance from Hugh Fraser-"

    Gripping story with many twists and turns. Quite spooky at times. Enjoyable and flawless narration with many characters voices - none overdone.

    My dog is worn out as I walked much further than I expected to see what happened next! Got me miles!

    I'd say this is amongst Agathas finest works-Loved it!

    "If you like an old fashioned 'Who Done It'"

    This was a great listen to one of Agatha's mysteries that does not involve Miss M or Msr Poirot. Expect that all is not fully revealed until the end, though it is fun to guess. And this a story where you could perhaps guess.
    A woman asks to see a priest. She dies, he dies. So it begins.
