Curtain: Poirot's Last Case

Agatha Christie, read by Hugh Fraser. AudioGO, unabridged, five CDs, 5 hrs., $11.95 ISBN 978-0-7927-7673-4
This audio version of Poirot's final case is masterfully narrated by Hugh Fraser, familiar to Christie fans as the actor who played Captain Hastings in the television series, Agatha Christie's Poirot. Now elderly and infirm, the Belgian sleuth and his old friend Captain Hasting find themselves back at Styles Court, the very estate where their great collaboration began many years ago. This time, Poirot must discern the identity of a brilliant serial killer—one of the guests at Styles. Fraser provides well-paced, pitch-perfect narration. His Hastings is (obviously) spot-on, and he provides Christie's characters with a range of superb voices: his elderly Poirot is frail and fussy, his Colonel Luttrell is appropriately crusty, and his Mrs. Luttrell is wonderfully sharp and bossy. Fraser offers up enjoyable listening that should not be missed. A Harper paperback. (May)
