Among the towering red cliffs of Petra, like some monstrous swollen Buddha, sat the corpse of Mrs Boynton. A tiny puncture mark on her wrist was the only sign of the fatal injection that had killed her.

With only 24 hours available to solve the mystery, Hercule Poirot recalled a chance remark he'd overheard back in Jerusalem: 'You see, don't you, that she's got to be killed?' Mrs Boynton was, indeed, the most detestable woman he'd ever met.

Another Christie classic which takes a series of turns that will keep listeners guessing to the end. Starring John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot.

    " well this was one of the most magnificent stories..i loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Fanoe | 2/15/2014

    " This is a weird one. Almost all of the book is devoted to the characters and the family, the mystery feels like an afterthought. It's like an interesting family drama with a random murder shoehorned in. It reads pretty awkward, but I did enjoy the family stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lexi | 2/14/2014

    " A typical but excellent read. Enjoyable because it's set in Jordan--in PETRA, one of my favorite places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 2/10/2014

    " First of all, why is there a snake on the cover? Second of all, if I hear the name "Boynton" one more time I'm going to scream! Ugh. In spite of those things this was a decent mystery. Not my favorite Poirot though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/10/2014

    " One of my favorite Christie novels, and I'm so glad I rediscovered it. Like her best novels, it delves into the psychology of a domineering woman and the family that are under her control. Christie's descriptions of this woman are eerie without being overdramatic. The cast of characters is interesting as well. Usually I can kind of see the end coming (as I'm reading her novels for the second time through, having read them before as a child) but with this one, I was completely stumped. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen Privett | 2/9/2014

    " Hercule Poirot, an archaeological setting, an intriguing family and a murder where everyone stands to gain and no one has an alibi. Perfect holiday reading (particularly in an Australian summer when you can image the heat in Petra all too easily!). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christa | 1/19/2014

    " This is one of the first Agatha Christie's that I read and only deepened my admiration for Poirot and his "little gray cells." I have also seen a couple of screen adaptations of this book and none of them do justice to the malevolence of Mrs. Boynton! I particularly enjoy Poirot's adventures abroad and this one is full of Christie drama. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Onur | 1/14/2014

    " I feel like im Hastings whenever i read poirot book. Never guessed the murderer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 12/6/2013

    " I think I saw a recent movie version of this, but they changed so much that I almost didn't believe I'd really seen it. Even the "guilty" party was changed. The book is better--less melodramatic, although the old woman is still evil. And a nice little epilogue, too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lidya Amalia | 12/4/2013

    " it's great mystery paperback. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 12/2/2013

    " One of my favorite Christies. The victim so obviously deserves to die; the death is rapid and painless. What more could a fan of cozy mysteries want? And we have the added bonus a mideastern background, with most of the action taking place in Petra, the rose-red city. A fun book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joslyn | 11/24/2013

    " i just found out that i like miss marple better than hercule poirot. i liked the messed up matriarch in this one, though, and unraveling who done it at the end was fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa Amanda | 11/13/2013

    " wonderfully written hercule poirot agatha christie novel, i recommend this to anyone who loves old school murder mysteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 mina | 10/19/2013

    " Salah satu buku yang masuk kategori menyeramkan. Apalagi membayangkan deskripsi tentang Mrs Boynton yang dibenci semua orang duduk diam di akhir hidupnya. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy | 9/11/2013

    " One of my favorites so far by Agatha Christie. The fact that it was set in Jerusalem and then Petra made it even more captivating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Salma | 8/2/2013

    " My favourite novel for Agatha Christie, out from her normal style of writing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Somyajeet | 2/24/2013

    " Tyranny raises his head only when our's is bowed, permanently. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linnea | 8/29/2012

    " Super good, but the movie was poo poo. Quite different from the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joy | 2/22/2012

    " I'm irrationally fond of this Hercule Poirot mystery, perhaps because I was a sucker for the schmoopy romances when I first read this in middle school. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AKsana | 8/21/2011

    " Never expected this ending, very surprising! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 8/12/2011

    " A very interesting story about a cowed family whose matriarch is murdered. In typical Christie fashion, you will NOT guess who the killer is, but you will suspect everyone else. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Luz | 7/4/2011

    " un poco floja pero sorprendente final. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shreya | 5/26/2011

    " The most twisting end any one could never think it was HER!!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lexi | 5/19/2011

    " A typical but excellent read. Enjoyable because it's set in Jordan--in PETRA, one of my favorite places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 5/10/2011

    " It is a fun read, always wondering if you can figure out the murderer from the clues divulged throughout the story. It was also a fun listen to with all the accents. Americans were not portrayed very well, but was interesting to get the comments of the characters of us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 5/5/2011

    " I read this after watching the BBC production with the same title. It was interesting to see how it had been adapted. This is classic A.C. with a great sense of atmosphere as well, as it is set near the ancient city of Petra and then partly in Jerusalem. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joyce | 4/5/2011

    " This book was the best of the ones I've read from her! AMAZING!!! I loved how she completed the ending and didn't leave it hanging loose. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isabell | 3/17/2011

    " This was a very good piece of work by Miss Christie. While I suspected some characters, I didn't for one moment suspect the actual murderer. As always a real treat listening to the audiobook. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 2/24/2011

    " As always, a fun Agatha Christie read. I do like it that it was based in the Middle East, Petra, during the time that the British Empire stil held the reigns of power. Of course Hercule Poriot was at his best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Babete | 2/20/2011

    " Já li há muitos anos, uma boa história! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrina | 1/16/2011

    " I think I'm getting the hang of figurong out her murderer. Her books are entertaining and quick. "
