The famous detective Hercule Poirot is summoned to the country home of Sir Gervase Chevenix-Gore, but when he arrives, his host is found dead in his study, apparently of suicide. This short selection proves again that Agatha Christie is a master of plot and conversation, in particular the art of interrogation, as demonstrated by the perceptive Hercule Poirot. Hugh Fraser’s clear and eloquent British accent bends and lifts to suit both the character and rhythm of this mystery. He successfully portrays a full cast of characters, mastering the difficult nuances of arrogance and self-importance of one and the twittering of another, and moves seamlessly among them.
