あらすじ・解説

When Cora Lansquenet is savagely murdered with a hatchet, the extraordinary remark she made the previous day at her brother Richard's funeral suddenly takes on a chilling significance. At the reading of Richard's will, Cora was clearly heard to say, "It's been hushed up very nicely, hasn't it.... But he was murdered, wasn't he?"

In desperation, the family solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery....

This title was previously published as Funerals Are Fatal.

Hugh Fraser Forever!

Would you consider the audio edition of After the Funeral to be better than the print version?

Yes, It was much more vivid than if I read it in bits and pieces myself. Listening to a great book allows me to listen for extended periods of time instead of trying to squeeze in reading time during a busy day.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Poirot. It begins and ends with Hercule.

What does Hugh Fraser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

There should be a law that only Hugh Fraser (or David Suchet) narrate Christie novels. Fraser's performance is like having your own special narrator who will spellbind only you to the exclusion of the rest of the world. A wonderful, wonderful talent. Fraser brings each character to life and adds emotional intensity at the perfect moment.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to work my way through each and ever single volume Hugh Fraser narrates.

an oldie but a goodie

Agatha Christie's stories still hold up well over time, in spite of items (even plot-dependent items) that are out-of-date these days. This is a good mystery, performed well by Hugh Fraser, and very enjoyable. Hercule Poirot is a character whom I find a little over-bearing, but fortunately he doesn't show up until about half-way through.

Weak Tea from Agatha Christie

I have greatly enjoyed other Agatha Christie mysteries read by Hugh Fraser. He is usually a gifted actor, shifting between accents and personas deftly and seamlessly. And I do not need to tell anyone about Agatha Christie's extraordinarily entertaining gifts as a writer. This audiobook is the exception to the rule. Both the plot, characters, and narration seem to have been phoned in. A kind of weariness underlies Hugh Fraser's narration which somehow imparts a "been there, done that" feeling to the whole affair. And perhaps that lack of excitement stems from the book itself. Hard to tell in an audiobook!

With so many other Agatha Christie novels and Hugh Fraser narrations to choose from, my advice is to save your Audible credits and let this one pass.

Agatha's amazing perceptions of people's character

This is Hugh Fraser's best performance I've listened to so far, he was fabulous! Of course, he had some great material to work with, this may also be my favorite story so far.

Brilliant Hugh Fraser, Classic Christie

What Joan Dickson and David Suchet are to the filmed versions of Agatha Christie novels, in wholly incarnating Miss Marple and Hercules Poirot respectively, Hugh Fraser is to the audiobook versions of these novels, in bringing to life the vast lot of Christie's characters. There is, without a doubt, no one better. I've tried listening to others read her works, and they all pale in comparison. Mr. Fraser's readings have been a great gift to me during this pandemic.

Good solid mystery beautifully read

Not the absolute best Poirot mystery, but solidly entertaining and Hugh Fraser is the perfect narrator for this series!

Great, but there are better books

Eell, Alter the funeral is a good story, but who knows Agatha Crristie books, is impossible do’t compare.
This book is a typical tale of mystery, with a wonderful investigation, which as always happens in the author's books, surprise the reader when the revelation of who the murderer was.

Mystery a bit dull

Hugh Frazier’s reading is wonderful and I love Agatha Christie, but this mystery was a bit on the dull side. Hard to care much about the large cast of characters, none of whom was particularly appealing.
