Description

A new unabridged Agatha Christie mystery, featuring the young adventurers Lady ‘Frankie’ Derwent and Bobby Jones. While playing an erratic round of golf, Bobby Jones slices his ball over the edge of a cliff. His ball is lost, but on the rocks below he finds the crumpled body of a dying man. With his final breath the man opens his eyes and says, ‘Why didn’t they ask Evans?’ Haunted by these words, Bobby and his vivacious companion, Frankie, set out to solve a mystery that will bring them into mortal danger…

An Agatha Christie favorite

The narrator is amazing, and sound quality is good. It may be the best narration I've ever heard, sharing first place with the other books narrated by Emilia Fox. She makes the main characters a pleasure to listen to, and at no point did I get tired of their voices.

The story is good, also easily one of my favorite Christie ones with how deep the plot is and how likeable the main characters become after by the end. There is nobody that is "all-knowing" (like poirot sometimes...) but the mistakes the characters make all seem quite reasonable. What some people might not like is how *unlikely* the plot is, with many lucky coincidences in favor or against the protagonists, but I'm very willing to look over that with how well it brings the story forward.

The ending is also great - all lose ends are tied up and it doesn't leave you wondering about why details happened how they did.
