Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Christie not only constructs a compelling plot, she explores the psychology of her characters, peeling away layers until she gets to their core. Hugh Fraser, who plays Captain Hastings in the BBC’s Poirot productions, has a resonant voice; his nimble use of British accents is perfect for evoking the upper-crust environment. He gives voice to the inner lives of all of the characters while moving the story forward seamlessly. Originally published as Murder after Hours, this book is pure pleasure.” AudioFile
“A strange, poignant book; these are deep waters [she writes about], with powerful undercurrents.” Michel Houellebecq, filmmaker and New York Times bestselling author
“Good double-bluff surprise.” Observer (London)
“A grade-A plot…The best Christie in years.” San Francisco Chronicle
