"Her gift is pure genius." (Observer)
"An amusing, exciting, well-written story." (Outlook)
"All signs indicate that Mrs Christie has been reading P.G. Wodehouse, and she does it very well in spots. This is her gayest thriller and mustn't be missed." (Books)
An absolutely excellent reading of an Agatha Christie mystery. Emilia Fox is superb at clear characterisation and the pace is spot on. The audio quality was consistent and clear throughout, with no noticible changes of pace or style.
I had not read this book before so the audio version was a delight, with Christie providing a 'subtle'plot. :-> Plenty of characters, some intersting locations and more red herrings than a Finish dinner party. Audio perfection!
"Emilia Fox was excellent!"
I had my doubts as to how well Emilia Fox would read this. But she was excellent.
The story was gripping and fun. She really made the characters come to life and added humour to those characters.
"Another car journey made interesting"
I really enjoyed listening to this as I drove to and from my brother's house. It's a light hearted Agatha Christie with a strong female lead. I thought I knew who had done it, changed my mind, and then found out I was right all along. The very end was a bit of a surprise, though. It is read clearly and with expression
