批評家のレビュー

"The plot is perfect and the characters are wonderful." ( San Francisco Chronicle)
"The best Poirot since such pre-war classics as Cards on the Table." ( New York Times)
"So simple, so economical, so completely baffling. Every clue scrupulously given, with superb sleight of hand." ( Sunday Times)

あらすじ・解説

Mrs McGinty died from a brutal blow to the back of her head. Suspicion fell immediately on her shifty lodger, James Bentley, whose clothes revealed traces of the victim's blood and hair. Yet something was amiss: Bentley just didn't look like a murderer.

Poirot believed he could save the man from the gallows. What he didn't realise was that his own life was now in great danger.

One of her best

Not as well known as 'orient express' or 'death on the Nile', but this book is one of her best with solid back story (where are they now) and excellent characterisations of all the residents at Broadhinney. Coupled with High Fraser's narration this is one of the best Christies I've download.

You can't go wrong with Agatha Christie. Time and again I return to her books (spoken or word) due to the timeless quality and appeal of her work.

Brilliant

This is my favourite Agatha Christie, Poirot, story. Whilst one suspects the murderer pretty quickly, the twists and turns and individuals stories are fascinating as they unfold.
Hugh Frasier's narration is superb. His vocal characterisations brilliant. I love his voice, and his range of accents etc is extraordinary. You could be listening to a play, he is so good.

Wonderful

What I enjoy most about listening to Agatha Christie is Hugh Frasers absolutely brilliant narration. I doubt I would read any of her books again,but hearing them literally brought to life by Mr Fraser is an absolute joy.
Don’t ever replace him.

A bit too morbid for my taste, otherways very good

A bit too morbid for my taste, but otherways a good story, and always a pleasure both to "meet" Poirot, and to enjoy the wonderful narrating by Hugh Fraser.

Where are they now?

When old Mrs McGinty is brutally killed in her own parlour, suspicion quickly falls on her lodger, the rather unprepossessing James Bentley. All the evidence points in his direction, and he is duly charged, tried and convicted. But somehow it doesn’t feel right to Superintendent Spence. He’s met many murderers in his long career and Bentley doesn’t seem to him to fit the profile. With the police case closed, he takes his concerns to his old friend Hercule Poirot, asking him to investigate with a view to either turning up evidence that will clear Bentley or alternatively finding something that will reassure Spence the right man has been convicted. But Poirot must hurry, before Bentley goes to the gallows...

This is yet another great mystery from the supremely talented Ms Christie. First published in 1952, she was still at the height of her formidable plotting powers and had that ease and occasional playfulness in her style that always makes her books such a pleasure to read. I’ve always loved the books in which Ariadne Oliver appears – Christie uses this mystery-writing friend of Poirot to provide a humorous and delightfully self-deprecating insight into the life of the detective novelist, and Ariadne’s love/hate relationship with her Finnish recurring detective must surely be based on Christie’s own frustrations with her Belgian one.

Poirot’s accommodation provides a good deal of humour in this one too. He must stay in the village, so boards with the Summerhayes – a couple with little experience of providing for paying guests and less talent. Maureen Summerhayes is delightful but scatterbrained, and her untidiness and lack of organisation drive the obsessively neat Poirot to distraction, while her less than mediocre cooking skills leave him longing for a well-cooked meal and a decent cup of coffee.

Following a clue missed by the police, Poirot soon begins to suspect that the motive for the murder lies in the past. He discovers a newspaper cutting in Mrs McGinty’s effects relating to four old murders with photos of the murderers, under the heading “Where are they now?” Poirot thinks that one at least of them may be living in the village complete with a new name and persona. But which? The recent war has destroyed many records, allowing people with shady pasts to reinvent themselves with reasonable safety from discovery. But as word of Poirot’s investigation spreads, it seems as if someone is getting nervous, and nervous murderers take risks...

I enjoyed this one thoroughly. I’d read it before long ago and pretty soon remembered whodunit but that didn’t spoil my enjoyment. It allowed me instead to look out for the clues as they happened, so I can say that this is a fair-play one – all the clues are there and they’re often quite easy to spot, but much more difficult to interpret correctly. Great fun, and as always Hugh Fraser’s narration is excellent, bringing out all the humour and warmth in the stories. Highly recommended!

Always keeps you guessing

I love Agatha Christie's books. She keeps you guessing right to the very end.
Hugh Fraser is a fantastic narrator. You often forget that it is one person reading the entire story. He makes it seem like a dramatized version.
