Now there were rumours of revolvers, flick-knives, and blood stains. But, without hard evidence, it would take all Poirot's tenacity to establish whether the third girl was guilty, innocent - or insane.

Jolly good mystery
The plot remained a mystery until the end.
Hugh Fraser is always pleasant to listen to. The characters are easy to differentiate, and he reads clearly.
Yes, I enjoy Agatha Christies stories, and her characters are people it's easy to feel sympathy with.
Great Agatha Christie novel narrated superbly by Hugh Frazer,
and if you're thinking 'Oh I've seen it on TV, well the ending in the book
is quite different from the TV episode, but just as great.
Highly recommended. Hugh Fraser 'Brilliant' as usual.
Christie at her best I think. It really made me think. The narrative is lovely really bringing Hercule and Mrs Oliver to life.
A comfortable and relaxing tale with a delicious splash of violence.
Poor Poriot gets upset when a young girl asks for his help, then she jumps up saying No you can can't your too old and runs away. Poriot is worried about the girl so he sets out to find her and sort out her problems ahhhh...
The girl thinks she's killed someone, she keeps losing track of time is she a killer or gone mad what is going on with her Poriot is determined to get to the bottom of this young girls situation. This is a really great audio book
Agatha Christie wrote her stories from the 1920s through to the 1970s - hard to imagine when so many of the television adaptations are permanently set in the thirties or Fifties! Many of her stories written and set in the 1960s give a lot of local colour as well as be good stories. Ok. So there are always a few 'far-fetched' elements (including wigs - I'll say no more) but all in all a cracking story and once again excellently narrated by Hugh Fraser.
Among the Agatha Christie novels I would rate it high.
I enjoyed this story because of the detail that went with setting up the murders and the complexity of uncovering who committed them.
I have listened to many of Hugh Fraser's excellent performances and found this narration just as good as his others.
I have always loved to read, mainly classic detective stories, and audible allows me to 'read' whilst I'm cooking dinner 😀
murder, insanity, sixties
The pale horse - similar period with settings in London.
Hugh Fraser does Ariadne Oliver very well.
