Publisher's Summary

It is Christmas Eve. The Lee family reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture, followed by a high-pitched wailing scream. Upstairs, the tyrannical Simeon Lee lies dead in a pool of blood, his throat slashed. But when Hercule Poirot, who is staying in the village with a friend for Christmas, offers to assist, he finds an atmosphere not of mourning but of mutual suspicion. It seems everyone had their own reason to hate the old man.

    Story
    "A good read"

    Hugh Fraser is a very good narrator, he brings the book to life. It is a good story, it's not my favourite Poirot book but it is an interesting plot and I am happy to return to this story from time to time.

    Story
    "Unusual and full of red herrings"

    Really enjoyed this. A fan of interesting crime - Agatha Christie, Dick Francis and the like, this was a new Poirot story to me. Full of twists and turns and the interesting group scene at the end where all is revealed. I didn't guess although as usual, all the clues were there if you just realised! Read well and with style. I would listen to another.

    Story
    "Rather far fetched"

    Well read as usual by Hugh Fraser but u find the plot of this one just a little too full of far-fetched plot twists. Good fun over Christmas though!

    Story
    "Christmas Poirot's style!! A murder"

    As always. It had it twists and turn and it fair bastards.
    I really like the way the story graduates to a round the table kind of finale.
