Enjoyable listen!

I very much enjoyed listening to this short story.

I liked the narrator’s voice and his reading.

Although the story had none of Christie’s clever red herrings or other unexpected plot twists, she quickly developed like-able characters, characters you wanted to be predictably and satisfyingly interacting in the storyline.
