Ever so slightly over the top, but loads of fun--one thinks that Christie would have approved. At an archaeological site in the Iraqi desert, the wife of the lead archaeologist suffers from nervous terrors that her former husband is coming to get her. Tensions mount, a death occurs, and Hercule Poirot, who is traveling in the Middle East, is asked to solve it all. The actors have a great time, and so does the listener. John Moffat’s Poirot is precise and peculiarly charming. The wife is clearly spooked. Her husband impatient, but concerned. Sound effects of everything from horses’ hoofs to creaking doors enhance the experience, and mood-inducing Eastern music floats throughout.
