A full-cast dramatisation of Agatha Christie's novel featuring Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot.

Gordon Cloade is killed in a London air raid, and his vast fortune passes to his young wife Rosaleen. Five of his relatives are desperate to get their hands on Cloade's money, and Rosaleen begins to fear for her life. The prospects for the Cloades improve when they discover that Rosaleen had a previous husband who perished mysteriously in Africa.

Then a mysterious stranger appears in the village, saying that he has something to communicate to her, but the following morning he is found dead. Was he, in fact, her husband?

    " Miss Marple or Poirot, who's the best? I don't know I enjoy them both in equal measure. Agatha Christie the consumate mystery writer. No one does who dun it better than her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Myken | 2/1/2014

    " My first Agatha Christie. It was enjoyable, but a little anticlimatic at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/7/2014

    " Beautiful young widow Rosaleen is the only thing standing between the Cloades and her late husband's fortune. Of course, if her first husband faked his death and is really alive, her marriage to Cloade would be invalid and they'd inherit. When someone arrives in their sleepy English village and says he knows something about that death, it's only a matter of time before there's another death. I remembered fairly early (from a reading years ago) what the trick in this book is, but if I hadn't read it before, I'm sure that Christie would have had me thoroughly fooled. "

    " Damn. Lynn ended up with Rowley. And i didnt see it coming. Rowley killed Arden, the cousin. And David, her own mistress. Great ending. Really great. "

    " DE MOORDENAAR WAAGT EEN GOK "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adrian | 11/29/2013

    " Yup, figured it out before the end. Which is always disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurel | 11/26/2013

    " Not her best - no likable characters and the last chapter just angered me. But I always love Poirot and the basic plot was enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rose | 11/16/2013

    " Good for a mystery; good for A>C>. Not my favorite though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maggie | 11/15/2013

    " Didn't finish it -- too slow and not as witty as she usually is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Berna | 10/4/2013

    " I really liked the plot and the mystery of the book; it included more than one crime/fault. Nonetheless, the ending felt a bit rushed and characters were not so likable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 10/3/2013

    " Not as good as some of her other books. I didn't find any of the characters likable, although I don't think I was supposed to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lolliepop | 6/3/2013

    " Another Agatha Christie's book!I shall say I like it, but no, not too much..I dont know, I just dont feel satisfied..perhaps, I am hard to satisfy, but I dont think so~ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 4/29/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book and was genuinely surprised by the reveal. I had gotten rather good at guessing the murderer in Christie's books but I guess I got rusty! However, one aspect of the ending really disturbed me and that ruined things a bit... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 1/3/2013

    " I did not like the ending, despite it being such a good book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul (formerly known as Current) | 10/9/2012

    " A Poirot mystery set just after WWII. The pace seems somewhat slow and is certainly lacking some of the humor that I enjoyed in other of Christie's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noralisma | 7/15/2012

    " It was such a good story, but i did hate it coz Christie cheated me and trapped me to admire the murderer! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruby Scarlett | 7/14/2011

    " Very good. Chilling villain and rather bizarre end for one of the couples though but the penultimate scene with Poirot insisting on having coffee with three of the suspects is priceless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 6/26/2011

    " It is not a VERY good book. A mystery. Like many others. The same structure. But I like mysteries, so, a good entertainment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bluemoon | 2/23/2011

    " This was a pretty good novel. It had me guessing until the end. As usually I love the characters and obviously the one and only Hercule Poirot! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lolliepop | 12/23/2010

    " Another Agatha Christie's book!I shall say I like it, but no, not too much..I dont know, I just dont feel satisfied..perhaps, I am hard to satisfy, but I dont think so~ "

    " Clean, gripping, witty, logical. Thanks Ms. Christie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 9/6/2010

    " 7/10 Another fun mystery from Agatha Christie. Suspicions and revelations of truth are well-developed. Included two romances which were important to the story but seemed unrealistic to my thinking. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 amy | 8/26/2010

    " "When you caught hold of me by the throat and said if I wasn't for you, no one should have me - well - I knew then that I was your woman!"

    Be still my wife-beating heart. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meave | 8/3/2010

    " You know, it was going great until Lynn realizes she's in love with the guy who tried to murder her while he's in the process of strangling her. That put the super-racist old lady in the shade. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 7/1/2010

    " Also known as Taken at the Flood "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsti | 6/23/2010

    " This was a fun reread. Minus one star for the "it wasn't until you were trying to strangle me that I realized that I love you and I'm your woman 4-eva" denouement. "
