Another Agatha Christie masterpiece

This is a set of short stories, the first of which is The Listerdale Mystery. I love Agatha Christie, and her prowess in crime fiction is apparent, whilst Hugh Fraser matches voice to character perfectly. Each mystery is separate, and none of the characters, twists or plots are the same. I recommend this to both Agatha Christie fans and those who are new to her work.

File error & awful audible customer service

This file does not have the correct chapters so is really hard to navigate. Chapters are merged together. Complained to audible and got fobbed off for weeks and told small chapters are often merged. That's nonsense because the stories in this audiobook are not short. Audible customer service was awful here.

And no chapters are named, which is just pure laziness and lack of consideration for customers.

Short and fun.

Short, amusing stories that make for an easy listening. Each story still has the Christie charm.

Enjoyed this collection

Really enjoyed this collection of short stories. They have a twist as you would expect from Agatha Christie. Very relaxing yet amazingly written and read.
Would be good if Audible would make the chapter breaks relate to the stories, but I’ve managed to bookmark them.

Great Little Christie Anthology

This is a nice little collection for Christie fans not featuring her usual dectectives. Some of the stories are a little 'samey" and I wouldn't call them her greatest works but they are a nice listen if you like the genre..well narrated and definitely worth a credit!
