Mystery & Suspense • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1936

This Hercule Poirot mystery finds the popular detective at an archaeological site. The fears of the wife of the expedition's leader are proven true when she is murdered. This story is told through the narrative voice of a nurse who was hired to ease those fears and who then takes on the role of assisting Poirot. Anna Massey keeps the pace moving well and use accents to characterize this diverse group. Some are better than others--the American accents are rather strained, and Poirot a bit exaggerated. But in each case, the characters are distinct and easily distinguishable. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
