I guessed the murderer by the preface. Least favorite Agatha Christie book because she spends more time developing Sheppards internal dialogue so as to hide the truth than actually making the book and characters likable.

The twists, the turns, the snark and cheekiness. Dame Agatha Christie knew how to write a great whodunnit with a great cast of characters like Hercule Poirot.

Hugh Fraser, who played Captain Hastings on Poirot did a great job narrating the audiobook.
