Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are lured to an island mansion off the coast of Devon by the mysterious U.N. Owen. Over dinner, a record begins to play, and the voice of an unseen host accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret. That evening, former reckless driver Tony Marston is found murdered by a deadly dose of cyanide. The tension escalates as the survivors realise the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again...and again.
Straightforward and delightful.
I've read this novel before in paperback format (it's one of my favourite novels) and purchased this audiobook to listen to while I ran errands. It's a straightforward copy with good voice-acting; i.e. different voices or tones for the different characters. This audiobook has been read by Hugh Fraser who plays Hastings in the "Poirot" ITV series. That added a bit more charm to the story, even if it doesn't involve the Belgian detective. Fraser is an excellent reader.
The story itself is intriguing. Ten strangers stranded in a manor on an island. They are confronted by their past crimes and forced to face the fact that they may all be murdered, one by one, by a psychopathic mad man who has orchestrated this sinister chain of events. Even if you're not a fan of Agatha Christie, this is a must-read-- after all, it's a classic.
I love Agatha Christie, mainly Poirot, but this is my favourite book she has written. Hugh Fraser's voice suits the story so well which is such an important part of an audiobook for me. A brilliant story and worth buying if you like to be engrossed in a murder mystery! I have listened to my audio copy probably over 40 times. I just always find it a fascinating listen !
