A charming, classic English country house mystery is brought to life in this radio dramatization. Hercule Poirot investigates the poisoning of a young woman following the death of a wealthy widow. Poirot is given a charming, astute characterization without overdoing it. The full cast of actors and complete sound track vividly create scenes, adding dimension a single narrator cannot. Gossipy whispering among servants, musical bridges and quick scene changes to advance the plot effectively build suspense and suspicion. This performance leaves the listener hoping Bantam will present more of Christie’s tales--many well suited to the audio format. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 93]
