      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Agatha Christie launches the legendary career of Hercule Poirot with this classic tale of intrigue. Did one of the Cavendish brothers poison their stepmother, Mrs. Iglethorp, or was it her new husband? Nadia May reads with such a delightful English accent, intonation, and careful pacing that the suspense and drama build gradually. Each character is easily distinguishable and a treat to listen to, especially Poirot. This baffling tale with many characters is a bit difficult to follow but well worth the effort. The compulsion to discover the truth is motive enough for all listeners. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
