When a girl is drowned after telling mystery writer Ariadne Oliver that she witnessed a murder, Hercule Poirot finds himself looking into several unresolved deaths in an English town. John Moffatt exaggerates Poirot's Belgian accent, but his speech is always clear, with the inflections used to good effect in making observations about human nature and showing the way Poirot uses flattery and manipulation to gain the confidence of witnesses. It's the observations about people that make this Agatha Christie novel work as the author brings her cozy mystery style into the less-than-cozy 1960s, giving Poirot and Oliver the chance to react to changing times.
