9780425067796: Dead Man's Mirror (A Hercule Poirot Mystery)

Sir Gervase Chevenix-Gore suspects he is the victim of fraud and contacts Hercule Poirot. The host's failure to answer to the dinner gong leads to the discovery of his body in the study. A gun, a shattered mirror -- the obvious inference is suicide until Poirot begins his investigation! Hugh Fraser, known to millions as Captain Hastings in the Poirot productions on television, gives a first-class performance. / Requires internet-enabled mobile phone (3G recommended)

About the Author:

Dame Agatha Christie is the world’s best-known mystery writer. Her books have sold over two billion copies worldwide and have been translated into 44 foreign languages.

During a writing career that spanned more than half a century, she created two of the world’s most famous detectives. Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple. The author of 79 novels and short story collections, she was also an accomplished playwright--one of her 14 plays, The Mousetrap, is the longest-running play in history. She published six romantic novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott and wrote four non-fiction books, including an autobiography. Several of her books, including Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile, were made into hugely successful films. She died in 1976.

From AudioFile:

The famous detective Hercule Poirot is summoned to the country home of Sir Gervase Chevenix-Gore, but when he arrives, his host is found dead in his study, apparently of suicide. This short selection proves again that Agatha Christie is a master of plot and conversation, in particular the art of interrogation, as demonstrated by the perceptive Hercule Poirot. Hugh Fraser's clear and eloquent British accent bends and lifts to suit both the character and rhythm of this mystery. He successfully portrays a full cast of characters, mastering the difficult nuances of arrogance and self-importance of one and the twittering of another, and moves seamlessly among them.
