Hercule Poirot attempts to read about the Greek heroes, only to be bored witless. Then he hits upon a plan: Why not compare himself with the mighty Hercules and correspondingly begin his own 12 labors? So we have this fun series of 12 short mysteries. Hugh Fraser is an old hand at the Christie stories, and it’s a pleasure to turn oneself over to this capable and talented actor. Fraser is able to paint a blustering dandy at once overblown and loveable. He is a master at creating little moments of humor with just a stutter or hesitation—his timing is perfection. He presents an Hercule who is our old friend and whom we are always happy to invite back into our lives. D.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
