Passenger to Frankfurt

Agatha Christie, read by Hugh Fraser, BBC/AudioGO, unabridged, six CDs, 7.5 hrs., $26.95 ISBN 978-1-60998-010-8

Hugh Fraser turns in a stellar performance in this audio version of Christie's classic mystery. When bored diplomat Stafford Nye meets a mysterious young woman at an airport lounge in Frankfurt, he learns her life in in danger and is drawn into a dangerous world of intrigue. Fraser—whom listeners will recognize as Captain Hastings on the BBC television series Poirot—reads with excellent pacing, tone, and inflection. He conjures up a host of compelling voices and accents for the cast of characters; his portrayal of Nye is spot-on and his high-pitched Aunt Matilda is a delight. (Oct.)
