John Moffatt stars as the great Belgian detective in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation. Famous crime novelist Ariadne Oliver, visiting her friend Judith Butler in the little town of Woodleigh Common, is invited to a Hallowe'en Party put on by society hostess Mrs Rowena Drake for the local teenagers.

During her preparations for the party, the conversation turns to Ariadne's grisly novels. One of the teenagers, Joyce Reynolds, boasts that she once witnessed a murder, although she didn't realise at the time what she'd seen. Convinced that she is just trying to attract attention, no-one believes her - but later she is found tragically drowned in an apple-bobbing tub. Distraught, Ariadne decides to call upon the services of her old friend Hercule Poirot to solve the case.

    " This is my other favorite Christie story - Poirot stuck in a typical English village (where you'd expect to find Miss Marple) and he's trying to find out who drowned a girl in an apple bobbing bucket, and why. I love the way the present is all tied up in the past in this story. "

    " A lovely, absorbing Agatha Christie, as always. I enjoyed this one very much, as I usually enjoy Poirot. I always think I'll be able to figure it out and never do. This time, I was half right at least. ;) The only problem with this one, for me, was the character Ariadne. She was SO irritating that I actually just glossed over almost every long-winded paragraph she dominated. Luckily, she pretty much only talks endlessly near the beginning and end. I love Hercule Poirot so obnoxious characters won't keep me away from him ;) "

    " Another great Hercule Poirot mystery. This one was creepier than some of the others from Agatha Christie. Also features Ariadne Oliver. "
