When an idyllic cruise along the Nile culminates in the death of the beautiful and wealthy newlywed and her maid, fellow passenger and famous sleuth Hercule Poirot turns his attention to solving the crimes. Originally created for BBC broadcast, this production combines a diverse and talented cast of characters, complex sound effects and stimulating music. The cleverly produced melodrama is alive with vibrant performances that allow the listener to easily visualize each character. Sound effects--the tinkling of silverware against china, the hum of background conversations in the dining car and screams of terror--create an authenticity that is never compromised. This production is highly theatrical and entertaining. B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
