Editorial Reviews

Well written, well proportioned, and full of surprises. Lovers of good stories will, without exception, rejoice in this book."

– The British Weekly

"Though first released in 1929 this murder mystery is every bit as entertaining now as it was then...This is just one in a series of audio adaptations from Audio Renaissance, the only US publisher approved by the Christie estate to adapt her stories for audio format...Hugh Fraser was well chosen as the narrator...Best of all is the Belgian accent he uses for Poirot. Not only is the accent spot on, but Fraser speaks with a flourish and a lightness in tone that befit the brilliant, if preening, little detective."

– The Boston Globe

"Altogether a skilful tale and a talented first book." Daily News "The most ingenious and absorbingly interesting tale of sensations and mystery we have read for a long time."

– Bookman
