This tightly executed adaptation of Christie's classic brings Hercule Poirot (John Moffatt) out of retirement to investigate a murder that is more complex than it first appears. Originally produced for BBC Radio, the dramatization features a solid cast of curious villagers and murder suspects, uninterrupted by excessive music or sound effects. Instead, we are led by the story’s first-person narrator, Dr. James Sheppard (John Woodvine), as he unwittingly becomes assistant to Poirot and his methodical pursuit of the facts and the "whole truth." With a plot that stands the test of time, listeners experience a world of intrigue, betrayal, drugs, and greed as Poirot uncovers each character's secret, leading to the mystery's famously shocking end.
