Excellent rendition of this classic!
Wonderful narration! The ending was quite a shock. I didn't see it coming. Superintendent Battle's dialogue at the end is one of my favorite parts. Hugh Fraser captures the voices of the characters so realistically in this, that especially at the climax, you almost forget it's a narrated book. You're so caught up, and you can see the characters and the scene so vividly in your mind, that you truly forget it's a book, and one person's doing all of the accents. Hugh Fraser's best narrative yet, and definitely an Agatha Christie similar to And then there were none, in the sense that you do not see the end coming. I've listened to the last 30 minutes many times, and still marvel at how well done it is.
