A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as the great Belgian detective.

Poirot has always hated visiting the dentist, but this time his check-up is painless and soon over. As he leaves Mr Morley's surgery, he observes a woman wearing patent leather shoes with large buckles. She catches one of the buckles on the taxi door and wrenches it off, and as Poirot hands it back, he is reminded of the children's rhyme 'One, two, buckle my shoe'.

Back home, Poirot is astonished to receive a call from Chief Inspector Japp, informing him that Mr Morley has shot himself. There was no reason for him to commit suicide, and Poirot believes he was murdered, but who would want to kill an inoffensive dentist? To find out, Poirot must pick up sticks and lay them straight...

As Poirot starts to dig and delve, the solution seems apparent. But with so many suspects, and a wealth of motives to digest, he has a long way to go before his plate's empty...

    " I am reading the entire Agatha Christie series, this wasnt a favorite, but I do enjoy her stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carmen | 2/11/2014

    " Loved the fact that I could not guess the end! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miriam | 2/9/2014

    " The mystery was very interesting and complicated, but I felt that the way the chapters matched the parts of the nursery rhyme was a little forced. Also, I agree with the other reviewer who is sick of Christie's racism. All the little comments add up after a while. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sian | 2/3/2014

    " Secara fanatik agatha christie...kalo istilah kakakku "mati-urip" agatha christie... :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/30/2014

    " The first Poirot story I read, and the (fake) Mrs Sainsbury was my fave ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maya | 1/16/2014

    " one of the earliest agatha christie's novel I ever read.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicky | 1/14/2014

    " Mr Blunt! I never suspected him. I thought Raikes seemed shady enough. Poirot the great (y) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meredith | 1/10/2014

    " Nothing to write home about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krystal | 1/6/2014

    " Definitely a darker one of Hercule Poirot's, but it added to the mystery and intrigue of the plot "

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

    " agak aneh nih kasus poirot yang ini. trus heran juga, ceritanya kok familier, ternyata saya pernah baca... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evelyne | 12/12/2013

    " Fun read. I really needed that. =)Really surprising ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ange | 6/28/2013

    " excellent. The chapters were headed with the counting and the comments. So ended with 19/20 my plates empty. "

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

    " The writing is very good, but the story is too reliant on Poirot noticing ridiculous details. By the time it got to the "exciting conclusion," I found myself saying "Sure," instead of "Wow!" A let down, considering the legend of Christie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 5/18/2013

    " There's a little bit of secret agent hokum that read awkwardly, but otherwise a good story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bogdan | 9/19/2012

    " Nothing out of ordinary novel, fully into the framework of the genre. Maybe the only thing that may set it apart is the fact that each chapter is based on a verse from a poetry. And the actual facts from the chapter also relates pretty much to the meaning of the verse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 9/9/2012

    " Sometimes a little melodramatic but always fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathie Hagen | 4/19/2012

    " I love Hugh Fraser, who plays Hastings on the LWT Poirot TV series. He reads this book. This is an exceedingly complex mystery & I love it. Not a huge amount of atmosphere here the way most Agatha Christie mysteries are. But Poirot will always be one of my all-time favorite sleuths. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 2/24/2012

    " This seemingly short book took me forever to finish. I felt disconnected from the story. The actual time-line of the mystery was over a period of several months and it felt as if it would take me real-time to complete the tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul (formerly known as Current) | 7/9/2011

    " Another enjoyable Hercule Poirot mystery. In comparison to many of the others, this one is somewhat slower moving and has much less of the humor that I enjoy in other. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 6/13/2011

    " Agatha Chrisite sure knows how to write them! "

    " oh no oh no oh no... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 4/16/2011

    " I do love a good Poirot mystery, and this is a particularly good one, very difficult to solve. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steph | 3/2/2011

    " Another fun Christie, although probably not my very favorite. I liked it, but I've liked others better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tariq | 2/2/2011

    " simply the best book i read for Agatha Christie "
