Overview

Retired police officer and occasional sleuth Luke Fitzwilliam wasn't thrilled to be stuck next to dotty old Miss Fullerton on the London-bound train. But at least she was amusing, regaling him with tall tales of "perfect murders" in the quaint village of Wychwood. When Miss Fullerton turns up dead, Luke becomes seriously worried and takes on the case. A visit to isolated Wychwood confirms his fears: There's a dark and dangerous secret that is dispatching the locals. Actor Hugh Fraser gives a captivating reading of this elaborate, engaging whodunit.

Agatha Cristie did a really good job setting up the plot for this story. Although it went a little slow for me I thought that it was a really good read! There are many twists that are not expected...you will be surprised at the end!

This book is sure worth reading despite there being no hercule poirot or miss jane marple. one of the basic things that i liked about the book was that it has too many murders taking place in a short span of time. another noteworthy thing - it is not a 'one room' mystery where one would have to keep track of all minute details like you had in cards on the table (which was no doubt excellent). i personally feel that in stories like this one readers dont have to tax their grey cells as the plot does not move at a languid pace. i mean like it did in murder of roger ackroyd.

It was ok but i just came off of reading And Then There Were None and i had a much higher expextation for this book. Definately not Agatha Cristies best.

I thought this Agatha Christie book was a bit sub-par. I was pretty sure of the direction the investigation was going to take and of "whodunnit" quite a while before it was revealed (which wasn't the case with the other three Christie mysteries I have read). The setup was a lot like the setup to the movie "Hot Fuzz" which kind of made me chuckle, but, sadly enough, I though that stupid comedy movie had a much more clever ending than this novel. Ultimately, entertaining enough, but certainly not Dame Agatha's best effort.

Wonderful story, as are most of Agatha Christie's. Love her style of writing, love her characters, love her stories. Simply great to have them on CD's. I have many of her works on CD and listen to them as I go to work and back. Hugh Fraser is definitely my favorite of all the people who do the readings of her novels/stories.

We really enjoyed this book! We really liked how there was a lot of deaths in such a short period of time. At first we thought we weren't going to like the book but we turned out to enjoy it! Even though there was no Hercule Poirot, it was still awesome! We highly recommend this book to all Christie fans!
