Listen to a sample

‘Like a lot of people I read Agatha Christie’s books young, about the age of 13, and I read them avidly. And I read them all as audiobooks so I got to know them all quite well all over again. The thing you realise is how good she is on characterisation. When you do an audiobook you write a list of characters so you can differentiate between them and very often there'd be 40 or 50 characters all clearly defined in these books including the chauffeur, the maid, the waiter – they'd all have a bit of a personality and that's what makes them so rich.’—HUGH FRASER, The Guardian
