Agatha Christie’s mystery dates from her days sojourning with her archaeologist husband. The archaeologist’s wife at this dig is agitated by threatening letters from her first husband, who is presumed dead. Then she’s murdered in a locked room. Hercule Poirot, conveniently in the area, amiably cogitates and vocally ruminates over the motive for her death, only to be confounded by a second murder. Who done it? This BBC performance has a full cast of voices and sound effects to tell the tale. Insects buzz and hum, stones crunch during walks and music signals changes in scenes. Rustling paper, scratchy voices and intense dialogue enthrall the listener until the surprising end. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 98]
