John Moffatt stars as Hercule Poirot in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Agatha Christie's famous novel.

Hercule Poirot is a guest at a weekend house party, given at the Cornish clifftop home of the celebrated actor Sir Charles Cartwright. The other visitors include keen amateur detective Mr Satterthwaite and distinguished Harley Street nerve specialist Sir Bartholomew Strange. Death visits the house soon after Poirot's arrival, the victim an elderly clergyman who's only had a sip of dry martini. What else was in the glass? Are natural causes to blame... or murder?

In Monte Carlo a short time later, Poirot and his aquaintances hear of another, similar death. Is this a mere coincidence - and can Poirot resist further investigation? Everyone concerned will be much relieved if he does. Meanwhile, a third tragedy is waiting in the wings...

George Cole, Michael Cochrane and Clive Merrison are amongst the cast in this adaptation of Agatha Christie's intriguing mystery.

Listener Opinions

    " This wasn't one of Christie's absolute best stories. For once, I could have almost figured it out. Still, it was interesting. "

    " I always have a soft spot for Hercule Poirot and would have given this more stars if he had been in the entire book. Murder at a cocktail party, where there are poor members of the aristocracy, famous doctor, famous playwright, famous actors, rude upstarts, shabby clergy, and Hercule Poirot. The murder of the well-liked clergyman seems so unlikely that even Hercule Poirot poo-poos it. Not until the second murder of the famous, nerve-specialist doctor, does suspicion fall on the first. And when the third murder of one of the doctor's patients takes place does Poirot jump into high gear, and we see the detective we love in action. "

    " A little slow to develop and harder than usual to get into. I managed to figure out the "who" in this whodunnit but was in the dark on the motive. "

    " True Agatha style narration. Inimitable. Poirot pulls the strings marvelously. "
