Description
Ariadne Oliver, Queen of Crime Fiction, has been asked to devise a Murder Hunt for a fate at Nasse House, the home of Sir George Stubbs. But she begins to suspect that someone is manipulating the scenario of her game and fears that something very sinister is being planned. She sends for her old friend Hercule Poirot. At first he is not inclined to take her very seriously but soon a series of events propels him to change his mind. Then suddenly all Ariadne's worst fears are realised when the girl playing the part of the murder victim is found strangled in the boat-house. For Hercule Poirot, the Murder Hunt has become a grim reality. John Moffatt stars as Hercule Poirot, with Julia McKenzie as Ariadne Oliver.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Even Hercule Poirot is nearly stumped this time. A famous crime fiction writer and friend invites Poirot to attend a murder hunt she's devised to entertain attendees of a fete at a country estate. Wouldn't you know it, the faux victim really does end up dead. The rest of the book is a chance to get to know the guests and suss out possible motives. Christie is the absolute best at creating an England that may never have existed except in our imaginations: garden parties, fancy dress, and roses in bloom. No one presents this varied cast of characters like David Suchet. Suchet may well be one of the best stars working in audio recording today. No one can excel him in making a character come alive as a distinct individual. Little pauses, stutters, lisps, background edginess, or a sense of humor lilts through to craft each person like a little painting and make him and her much more distinct than a mere accent would. David Suchet is a class act and a fine artist. D.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Listeners are sure to enjoy this lively dramatization of one of Christie's classic Poirot novels. The plot moves along mainly through conversations between the perfectly cast characters, aided by snippets of music and descriptive sound effects. John Moffatt gives the great detective just the right touch of a Belgian accent as he assists in a murder hunt party staged by the delightfully befuddled novelist, Ariadne Oliver. When the pretend victim is found to be truly murdered, everyone involved is a suspect, creating a familiar whodunit with a surprisingly dark ending. This is fun audio theater for anyone--perhaps even more fun for those who are familiar with the plot and these beloved characters. M.M.G.
