This is only the third time I've read a Poirot mystery so I am by no means an expert on the character. I will say I thoroughly enjoyed Murder on the Links. The book at 6 hours is just the right length. It is tightly written with many twists and turns, yet everything makes sense by the time it is over. Poirot arrives on the scene in response to a request for his help only to find the man who has summoned him has been murdered. Even as Poirot investigates, another body is discovered. Add to that an official detective who disagrees with Poirot every step of the way. Ms. Christie put together an entertaining murder mystery. Add to that, Hugh Fraser as the narrator. I thought his narration was a cut above the usual reading. When I looked him up I discovered he portrayed Captain Hastings on television in Poirot, making him a natural to narrate this book. I recommend it!
