Ten miscellaneous people gather on an island for dinner at the invitation of an eccentric, and gradually each one is killed ... until there are only two left.... Masterful Christie at her best. Fraser, perhaps best known for his television role as Captain Hastings on the Hercule Poirot Mystery Series on PBS, offers an impeccable fully voiced reading that brings the tension, characterization and atmosphere to life in an outstanding performance. A classic mystery perfectly performed. Jean Palmer, KLIATT
