In Act I, at a dinner party given by a famed British actor, one of the guests drops dead. In Act II, at a second dinner, which includes some of the same guests, another death occurs. Two dead men may equal murder. One of the guests, Hercule Poirot, follows suspects (often literally) and clues, both real and “staged,” to bring the curtain down on the killer. Andrew Sachs gives this minor Christie vigor and authenticity, even to an unoriginal motive. His Poirot is methodical, polite, and perfectly accented, but sounds like other Poirots. Sachs’s best interpretations are those of the actor’s young fiancée and the killer. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
