The Labours of Hercules - Agatha Christie - Read by Hugh Fraser- Audio Book CD

Brand New : (still shrink wrapped)  Unabridged 8.7 hours   7 CDs

First published in book shape in 1947, The Labours of Hercules comprises an even dozen mysteries starring Christie's top sleuth, the ever-dignified Hercule Poirot. The introductory chapter of the collection sets up the rest of the book. At a dinner party, another guest compares the labors of Poirot to people of Hercules, and the small Belgian is not amused. He has absolutely decided to retire, but makes up his notice to take on 12 amazing instances — each somehow reflecting the labors accomplished by Hercules — as a farewell to crime solving. The instances are very different from each alternative, from looking for a lost poet to looking down a especially ferocious murderer, from solving mysterious deaths of religious cult members to saving a young would-be politician from possible blackmailers. Frequent Christie interpreter Hugh Fraser brings stories like "The Cretan Bull" and "The Apples of the Hesperides" to dazzling life

Hugh Fraser is acknowledged to millions as "Captain Hastings" helping Poirot in A&E's Poirot and in the PBS-TV Mystery! series. He furthermore reads Agatha Christie's And Next There Were None , Dead Man's Mirror, Thirteen At Dinner and The Big Four for The Audio Partners.

About the Author Agatha Christie

Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa, Lady Mallowan, DBE (15 September 1890 – 12 January 1976), commonly recognised as Agatha Christie, was an English crime fiction author of novels, brief stories and plays. She equally wrote romance novels under the name Mary Westmacott, but is ideal remembered for her 80 detective novels and her lucrative West End theatre plays. Her functions, especially featuring detectives Hercule Poirot or Miss Jane Marple, have provided her the title the 'Queen of Crime' and produced her the most significant and innovative writers in the development of the genre.

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay, in the county of Devon, as the daughter of Frederick Alvah Miller, an American with a moderate private money, and Clarissa Miller. Her dad died when she was a child. Agatha Christie was educated house, where her mom encouraged her to write from rather early age. At sixteen she was transferred to school in Paris where she studied singing and piano.

Christie has been called — by the Guinness Book of World Records, among others — the best-selling author of books of all time and the best-selling author of any type, together with William Shakespeare. Just the Bible is acknowledged to have outsold her accumulated sales of approximately 4 billion duplicates of novels. UNESCO states that she is currently the many translated individual writer in the planet with just the collective business functions of Walt Disney Productions superseding her.. As an illustration of her wide appeal, she is the all-time best-selling writer in France, with over 40 million duplicates sold in French (as of 2003) versus 22 million for Emile Zola, the closest contender.

Her stage play, The Mousetrap, holds the record for the longest initial run in the globe, opening at the Ambassadors Theatre in London on 25 November 1952, and as of 2008 continues to be running after over 20,000 performances. In 1955, Christie was the initially recipient of the Mystery Writers of America's highest honor, the Grand Master Award, and in the same year, Witness for the Prosecution was provided an Edgar Award by the MWA, for Best Play. Many of her books and brief stories have been filmed, some various occasions over (Murder found on the Orient Express, Death found on the Nile, four.50 From Paddington), and various have been adapted for tv, radio, games and comics.
