This review is from: Lord Edgware Dies: Complete & Unabridged (Audio CD)
Glamorous actress Jane Wilkinson is desperate for a divorce from her abusive husband, Lord Edgware, and declares publicly that she could cheerfully kill him. Poirot agrees to see his lordship on her behalf, only to be told he agreed to a divorce months ago. 24 hours later, lord Edgware is found dead. Jane is the original main suspect, but how can she have killed him when at the same time she was attending a dinner party with twelve other guests? It will take all of Poirot's little grey cells to resolve this case.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story; the way Poirot is forced to painstakingly unpick the tangle of suspects and motives to uncover the murderer while the number of victims gradually mounts held my attention. The story is told from Hastings' point of view and Hugh Fraser does his usual excellent job as the narrator, effortlessly switching voices for the different characters.
