Hugh Fraser

Thank you for coming back! Please read the man in the brown suit & the others you didn’t get to. You are a better Poirot than anyone else! I am an Agatha Christie geek & you Hugh are the very best. Thank you for doing this & please continue the ones Emilia Fox has done. Love you so very much you are the very best. Hugs Lou Harris Xx

Lovely stories

A nice mix of Agatha Christie stories, my only complaint is the bad editing, random comments like " end of disc three" could have been easily sorted out.
