When Hercule Poirot handles a case with his sidekick, Captain Hastings, you know you’re in for an intricate chess game. Life is on the line when an egotistical American actress comes to Poirot, requesting his help in divorcing her British husband. Death, of course, is hovering nearby, and as the body count climbs, so does Poirot’s frustration with the cunning murderer. Or is it murderers? The connections between the players are numerous and confusing. Hugh Fraser, who played Captain Hastings in the PBS screenplays, creates characterizations that beckon listeners into Dame Christie’s fun house of drama and foul play.
