Hugh Fraser, known to TV audiences as Captain Hastings on “Mystery’s” Hercule Poirot series, has once again recorded a vintage Christie detective story. This story could have been titled THE CASE OF THE MURDERED DENTIST except that the author was going through her phase of using nursery rhyme titles to give clues. (First clue, “buckle.”) Hugh Fraser does a passably good job of presenting the great Belgian detective, although one misses David Suchet’s portrayal. Fraser's delivery is well paced, the diction clear, and the characters well delineated. This classic mystery has stood the test of time. Audio listeners will enjoy hearing an old favorite.
