Ariadne Oliver, Queen of Crime Fiction, has been asked to devise a Murder Hunt for a fête at Nasse House, the home of Sir George Stubbs. But she begins to suspect that someone is manipulating the scenario of her game and fears that something very sinister is being planned. She sends for her old friend Hercule Poirot.

At first, he is not inclined to take her very seriously, but soon a series of events propels him to change his mind. Then suddenly, all Ariadne's worst fears are realised when the girl playing the part of the murder victim is found strangled in the boat-house. For Hercule Poirot, the Murder Hunt has become a grim reality.

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as the great Belgian detective, with Julia McKenzie as Ariadne Oliver.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Merrill | 2/17/2014

    " Kind of weird for a Poirot novel....it was just like, "Boom. The end!" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 2/4/2014

    " Not Christie's best. She seemed to lose interest immediately after the first murder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 1/30/2014

    " One of her top books on my timeless list. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Portobellord | 1/28/2014

    " Charming little mystery. Just what I needed to cleanse my palate after reading Sharp Objects. I only wish that Ariadne Oliver and Poirot had interacted together more as they have a strange, yet appealing chemistry. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassie | 1/22/2014

    " This is the first Agatha Christie novel that I have chosen the murderer correctly. That does not mean that this is an easy one to figure out, or a waste of time. On the contrary, the only thing I got right was the murderer, the rest was a complete surprise, and yet such a simply perfect solution. Christie always gives a good ride, and this one is no exception. I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fran | 1/18/2014

    " Agatha Christie's mysteries have been a delight to me from the time that I first began reading adult books. And The guy who plays Poirot on PBS (David Souchet?) reads this so well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karlyne Landrum | 12/29/2013

    " Mother love is a strange thing is what I learned from this book...... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 12/24/2013

    " This Christie is a little different than the regular Poirot's as the case is not solved right away but some time latter. Poirot goes to investigate a case that hasn't happened yet based on Ariadne Oliver's (Agatha Christie's character) "feeling." A good story that's not so straight forward. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen Chow | 12/19/2013

    " I didn't like the reveal at the end. It was totally out of left field and uncharacteristic of Agatha. However, I really liked her portrayal of mystery writer Ariadne Oliver; perhaps it was a little salute to herself? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew James | 12/18/2013

    " A lesser Agatha Christie because the mystery is completely underdeveloped. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dot | 12/8/2013

    " Standard Agatha Christie plot which does not disappoint. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/7/2013

    " This book read wonderfully, but I still can't quite figure out how it ended. I reread Poirot's solution to gain more clarity, but no dice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 12/4/2013

    " This was another real mystery right up until the last. I am not a big fan of Perot but he was humble enough this time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lain | 6/18/2013

    " My first Agatha Christie and I really enjoyed it. In many ways it reminded me of the Enid Blyton books I grew up with. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janiece | 2/23/2013

    " Classic Agatha Christie -- master of all-- how can you go wrong? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 1/24/2013

    " This was a refreshing dip back into the original genius of Agatha Christie. Dead Man's Folly is full of her great characterizations and plot twists. And what a bonus to listen to it narrated by David Suchet, best Poirot ever in my opinion. Terrific to listen to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Hewitt | 12/26/2012

    " A student recommended. How long has it been since you've read Agatha Christie? A nice, refreshing break for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yvonne | 6/29/2012

    " A little more predictable than most. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 rivka | 2/7/2012

    " A good if not great Poirot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lise | 1/18/2012

    " At first I felt it was slightly more dull and slow to really get going, but towards the midway point it picked up and had many an enjoyable twist and turn to read through. Perhaps not a favourite, but clever as always. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mina Van der Woodsen | 11/18/2011

    " i only gave it 4 stars because i didn't solve the puzzle and i don't like that,i also don't like when i don't understand something.I like when a book makes you think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Flora | 10/5/2011

    " This one was a bit difficult to follow once Poirot suddenly figured everything out, but still enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nadia | 10/4/2011

    " I loved all the books Agatha Christie wrote "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 9/19/2011

    " Another good read by AC. Seemed to be a little autobiographical in a humorous, self-deprecating way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry | 7/29/2011

    " This was my first Agatha Christie story. It is a great whodunit. The book on tape was very entertaining. David Suchet had me in awe with his ability to vary is voice for different characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Walt Walkowski | 7/22/2011

    " This book's resolution came completely out of the blue. Agatha put so many different trails in this one, and they all seemed to lead away from the real murderer. It's amazing how she can tie everything up in the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 6/16/2011

    " Dislike. I found the explanation TOO outlandish to be considered convincing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fran | 5/18/2011

    " Agatha Christie's mysteries have been a delight to me from the time that I first began reading adult books. And The guy who plays Poirot on PBS (David Souchet?) reads this so well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ???? | 5/14/2011

    " There is something about Mrs. Oliver that I really like. I don't know what it is, I just really like her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victor | 5/11/2011

    " A classic Agatha Christie's book. But one of the best.
    Deserves a 6, but a 5 is the maximum rating.
    I'm afraid that is the only thing I can tell without spoilers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 4/24/2011

    " As always, another fantastic AC book! Loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simona | 4/24/2011

    " Ah, stavolta la Christie ha fatto cilecca! La storia è un po' troppo campata in aria, tanto sarebbe valso se Poirot se la fosse inventata di sana pianta, la soluzione. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mina | 3/13/2011

    " i only gave it 4 stars because i didn't solve the puzzle and i don't like that,i also don't like when i don't understand something.I like when a book makes you think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/22/2011

    " This book is pretty great. I love the new resolution. I can't believe that the mistress is actually the first wife of Sir George! It's so unheard of, yet so brilliant, so great, so unique and weird. READ, REREAD, and enjoy. I will do so also. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Štefan | 11/8/2010

    " Bylo to paradni cteni - až do pointy. Tady Poirot nepusobi jako genialni detektiv, ale spis jako fabulator, ktery si pachatele "vykouzli" ve vlastni hlave. Dilky do sebe zapadaly hodne chtene a umele. Konec zkratka nedela zajimavemu napadu s hrou na vrazdu prilis dobre jmeno. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abi | 4/10/2010

    " "Put your trust in God and keep your powder dry" "
