This is NOT narrated by Hugh Fraser!

Where does The Kidnapped Prime Minister rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The moment this story started playing, I immediately recognized the voice of David Suchet, not Hugh Fraser. I am not fond of David Suchet as an audiobook reader. Though I love him as Hercule Poirot, in my opinion Hugh Fraser far outshines him as a reader. Audible, please correct this error!

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

He could have been Hugh Fraser.
