What reason would an amiable dentist like Dr. Morely have for committing suicide? He didn't have emotional difficulties, money problems, or love trouble. What he did have was an appointment with Hercule Poirot, who is not persuaded by the suicide story and has therefore taken it upon himself to questions the good doctor's patients, partners, and friends. All he's come up with is the numbing fear that Dr. Morely wasn't an unlikely victim at all. Nor the first.
Why I wanted to read it: Because I'm addicted to Agatha Christie right now! Can not get enough!

- I absolutely love Hugh Fraser as a narrator. His voice is wonderful and the pronunciation of his words are so sharp and crisp. I feel like I'm right in heart of England when I'm listening to him tell the story.
- I liked Poirot a lot in this story and found him to be a very engaging character. I love it when someone ruffles his feathers just a bit and he gets a bit huffy...Fraser really brings him to life!!
- This was a very complicated plot and at times I found myself struggling to keep the players all in line in my brain. I had absolutely and I mean...ABSOLUTELY no clue who the murderer was in this one. And I had such high hopes for myself!
In my opinion this one wasn't a favorite for me. I think it may have been that at the end I found the reasons for the murders really strange and almost implausible. I'm glad that I listened to it though and I can now cross off another Christie book from my list!
