Publisher's Summary

Ariadne Oliver, Queen of Crime Fiction, has been asked to devise a Murder Hunt for a fête 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.
A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as the great Belgian detective, with Julia McKenzie as Ariadne Oliver.

A perfect dramatisation.

I love these dramatisations! I listened to this one during a stay in Devon after a visit to Agatha Christie's home Greenway. A perfect time to listen and a near perfect listen. The voices are just right and involve the listener completely in the story. A reminder of why Agatha Christie remains one of the best crime writers ever and why I could listen to her Marple and Poirot stories over and over again!
