Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1952

Poor Hercule Poirot. Now that he’s retired, there’s only food to look forward to—too bad there are only three meals in a day. Poirot is rejuvenated when Superintendent Spence approaches him about Mrs. McGinty's murder. It SEEMS straightforward, but Spence, and then Poirot, have doubts. Narrator Hugh Fraser is particularly compelling as author Ariadne Oliver, who is said to be Christie's alter ego in her mysteries. The wide range of suspects includes a most convenient one, Mrs. McGinty's lodger. There are some funny moments while Poirot boards with one of the worst cooks in England. The story closes with Poirot teaching her to make a proper omelet. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
