Mystery & Suspense • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1926

Combining murder, with rumors and gossip, narrator Nigel Anthony performes this classic Christie mystery with superb pacing and style. Versatility, gender changes, and English accents display his dynamic range of characters and animate the quiet village of King's Abbot. From Poirot's charming, sophisticated humor to Mrs. Ackroyd's snappy, breathless speech, the depictions are true to character and provide plenty of red-herrings for listeners to follow. Poirot's precise deductions lead to blackmail, murder, and a surprising conclusion. The depiction of Dr. James Sheppard, with his clipped, academic voice, lends itself well to dry humor.
