A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring Peter Sallis as the great Belgian detective. Tyrannical millionaire Simeon Lee has been estranged from most of his family for years. But now, on Christmas Eve, the old man calls them all together once more. Unable to disobey, the children gather uneasily and wonder what their father's intentions are. Does he want to clear up past misunderstandings or cause fresh mischief?

Before they can find out, a deafening crash is heard overhead. Rushing upstairs, they discover a shocking sight: Simeon Lee is lying in a pool of blood, his throat cut. But it is the strangest thing - the door has been locked from the inside and there is no trace of the murderer.

With so many possible suspects, it is lucky for Superintendent Sugden that the Chief Constable has his old friend Hercule Poirot staying with him. It seems to be an impossible case. But, as Poirot knows only too well, things aren't always as they seem.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 russell barnes | 2/19/2014

    " The fact I missed the new series of Upstairs Downstairs to finish this tells you all you need to know - genius, and I DID NOT spot the killer... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sareene | 2/16/2014

    " Nothing like an Agatha Christie book to make up for a disappointing read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy | 2/10/2014

    " A nice solid Poirot book set at Christmas (not that you can really tell) with a standard whodunnit, great cast of characters and the usual twists and turns. Not the best and less great Poirot moments but still entertaining to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lili Ghazaryan | 2/1/2014

    " the best book about the famous detective "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 1/13/2014

    " A Quick Read. i didn't see the twist in the ending. I enjoyed reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 cloudyskye | 1/4/2014

    " Not the most memorable Poirot, but a very decent and quick holiday read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenda | 12/30/2013

    " My first Agatha Christie read. Why did I wait so long? Enjoyed it very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 February Four | 12/29/2013

    " Hah, this was nicely done and pretty ingenious. I liked it a lot! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Moffat | 12/26/2013

    " The first Poirot of Agatha Christie's books I have read and so far, I think I prefer his character to Miss Marple's. Again, I enjoyed the build up of the mystery and love the way she always manages to surprise you in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosamond | 11/27/2013

    " Wow! First one I've read of Christie's books! Loved it and will read more... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zach | 11/24/2013

    " There are a couple of logistical problems with the story's conclusion, including the convenient fact that the time of death was omitted during the inquest. Other than that, it was an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Johnvano | 5/31/2013

    " This was a decent read, but it's from the school of mysteries where the reader can't possibly solve the case ahead of time because you can't actually see... well, never mind. Don't want to ruin it. A simple, quick, "break book." That is, a book you read between others of more a strenuous nature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 10/23/2012

    " A Good solid Christie mystery. Always a pleasure to revisit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Roberds | 10/11/2012

    " Lots of pieces to assemble in solving this puzzle. Nicely resolved in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anhar Babllah | 7/11/2012

    " i don't like Agatha's novels, when it includes Poirot, it has a good idea, and a wonderful way of writing, but the problem is that i felt all the information and the truth became clear, in one moment, and it felt heavy, but it'san amazing book ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 4/23/2012

    " All I can say is this is an excellent Poirot. Just excellent. It may be the best Poirot I've ever read. I'm speechless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Hughes | 9/23/2011

    " Another great mystery book by Agatha Christie, I just love ALL her books! "

    " Wished it'd had more to do with Christmas. Loved the twist in the end. Didn't really like any of the characters so I wasn't hooked in the beginning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 2/24/2011

    " I love the short story collections. This, however, was one of the more predictable stories I've read of hers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Manikanta | 9/15/2010

    " Its a collection of short stories with five involving Poirot and one Miss Marple. All are good. Typical Christie stories...I liked The Dream most... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elf_owl | 5/16/2010

    " Thought it was okay. I generally don't like Agatha Christie's short stories as much as the novel length ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fanda | 8/23/2009

    " Kisah-kisah lepas tapi tetap menawan. Hampir semua adalah kisah Poirot, hanya 1 yang Miss Marple. Ringan, renyah, tapi tetap khas Agatha "

    " Agatha is always a good read or re-read "
