Summary

An urgent cry for help brings Poirot to France. But he arrives too late to save his client, whose brutally stabbed body now lies face downwards in a shallow grave on a golf course.

But why is the dead man wearing his son's overcoat? And who was the impassioned love-letter in the pocket for? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse...

absolutely brilliant

I'm actually becoming obsessed with Agatha Christie🤣 I finished all of the miss Marple stories in about a week and a half during lockdown. I then took a break from christie and listened to the complete collection of sherlock Holmes before returning once more to the queen of crime. I wasnt sure about Poirot as I was worried he'd be a slimy, pretentious bigot as so many male detectives in that time were. I needn't have worried, however, as Agatha Christie is too brilliant a writer for that. I definitely recommend this and all other of her books wholeheartedly and hope you enjoy them just as much as I have. I am increasingly aware that I seen to be morphing into a grandmother type as I listen to these stories while drinking tea and knitting, despite being 15 but do you know what? Hell said the duchess:). This story is just as excellent and thrilling as any other by Christie so please settle down with a nice cuppa, looking out into the autumn evening and listen to this wonderful tale.

Murder on the Links

Poriot responses to a cry for help he goes immediately to France, when he gets there he's to late.

Much enjoyed

Late to the written Poirot - Murder on the Links is my second book - I’m delighted to think that I have so many treats in store. The combination of Agatha Christie’s story telling and Hugh Fraser’s reading is superbe!

Enjoyable early Poirot

Probably my favourite early Poirot read by the ever excellent Hugh Fraser. This has quite an involved plot that is well suited for an audiobook as you can pay attention to the details. The only minor criticism is that the accent for Cinderella is too posh. Her character is not meant to be of the same social class as Hastings.

Great Poirot!

I loved it. Regarding thw narration, the accent is sometimes a little uneven and I guessed for a second or two if Poirot or Hastings was supposed to be talking but the context soon helped. The French names could have been pronounced a little clearer (Giraud sometimes sounded like Giroux and Daubreuil like Debreuil). But really it was great narrating and moreover an amazing storyline. Pure Agatha Christie.
