When Lord Edgware dies a most unnatural death, detective Poirot must solve a most confounding conundrum.

When Lord Edgware is found murdered, the police are baffled. His estranged actress wife was seen visiting him just before his death, and Hercule Poirot himself heard her brag of her plan to “get rid” of him.

But how could she have stabbed Lord Edgware in his library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? If the obvious killer, the slain peer’s spiteful wife, didn’t do it, who did? It’s a case that almost proves to be too much for the great Poirot.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The whole case is a triumph of Poirot’s special qualities.”

    Times Literary Supplement (London)

  • “When Hercule Poirot handles a case with his sidekick, Captain Hastings, you know you’re in for an intricate chess game. Life is on the line when an egotistical American actress comes to Poirot, requesting his help in divorcing her British husband. Death, of course, is hovering nearby, and as the body count climbs, so does Poirot’s frustration with the cunning murderer. Or is it murderers? The connections between the players are numerous and confusing. Hugh Fraser, who played Captain Hastings in the PBS screenplays, creates characterizations that beckon listeners into Dame Christie’s fun house of drama and foul play.”
