Julian Rhind-Tutt is a narrator of one's dreams. He reads clearly in a melodious voice with spot-on pacing. He offers believable and interesting characterizations of everyone from Belgian Hercule Poirot to a working-class London tea-shop lady. And when the text offers context, such as "he laughed"--well, he has the character laugh. They also cough on cue. What is the audiobook about? It's the third of Sophie Hannah's mystery homages to Agatha Christie's detective. As long as you accept that Hannah's Poirot is livelier and less finicky than the original, and that the books, although well written, aren't as tightly plotted as the originals, you'll enjoy the result. This one involves an old man who drowned in his bath. Or was he shoved under? A.C.S.
