Summary

Among the towering red cliffs of Petra, like some monstrous swollen Buddha, sat the corpse of Mrs Boynton. A tiny puncture mark on her wrist was the only sign of the fatal injection that had killed her.

Hugh Fraser brilliant as always!

A great story that leaves you guessing. Hugh Fraser's narration is perfect as always and he does a great Poirot.

A gripping tale of 'mother love'!

I found this totally unputdownable!!! It is one the best audio books that I have ever listened to and has already become one of my most played. It is performed with insight, skill and an obvious love for Christies written word. Download it and be prepared to shiver!!

Great mystery

I love Agatha Christie and Hugh Fraser is an appropriate and familiar narrator. Speed, intonation and accents are all reasonable and this is a good undemanding listen.

Brilliantly read classic Christie

Excellent narration by Hugh Fraser. A classic Poirot story, set in Romantic faraway places. Most enjoyable and will certainly merit another listen.

Hugh Fraser is a fantastic story teller.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Agatha's story's are as good as everyone says they are and this one, in my opinion, is one of the best. Hugh Fraser makes the whole book come alive, amazing talent.

very entertaining

Would you listen to Appointment with Death again? Why?

You can never go far wrong with Agatha Christie and this is one of her best. As always Hugh Frasier is a brilliant narrator.

Beautifully written, read and performed.

Gripping 'til the end! As usual with AC, I couldn't work out how the murderer was!

Hugh Fraser is simply brilliant as the narrator / voice actor.

Murder at Petra

This has long been one of my favourite Christie novels- very interesting characters and a most unusual setting. I haven't yet made it to Petra but it's definitely on my bucket list, purely because of this book.
