    Another title in the ever popular Agatha Christie series.The suave and debonair Colonel Race must solve a question, not of 'accidental death or suicide', but 'murder or double murder'.Pretty, young Anne came to London looking for adventure.

    Great story, shame about the narration

    This is a lovely, light-hearted adventure story. It is often very funny. The heroine is resourceful and fun, there are lots of twists and turns and Ag..Show More »

    Mr Shaitana was famous as a flamboyant party host. Nevertheless, he was a man of whom everybody was a little afraid. So, when he boasted to Poirot that he considered murder an art form, the detective had some reservations about accepting a party invitation to view Shaitana's private collection.

    Hugh Fraser brilliant!

    I have read this story many times but I always enjoy hearing Hugh Fraser narrate he really makes the characters come alive.

    The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful. A girl who had everything...until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: "I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting nothing was ever quite what it seemed.

    David Suchet narrating Poirot is a must!

    Superb narration of one of my favourite Poirot stories. Poirot is brought to life in this retelling.

    Agatha Christie's classic thriller. Features the recurring character Colonel Race from Death on the Nile, Cards on the Table and The Man in the Brown Suit. Six people sit down to dinner at a table laid for seven. In front of the empty place is a sprig of rosemary - in solemn memory of Rosemary Barton who died at the same table exactly one year previously.No one present on that fateful night would ever forget the woman's face, contorted beyond recognition - or what they remembered about her astonishing life.

    A "SPARKLING" TALE!

    This is a "keeper" There are at least two other versions both of which I have and I never tire of this story.
