excellent dramatisation

The characters are all true to the book, the story is well paced and the addition of various background noises and occasional musical interludes add to the overall setting.



John Moffat once again brings the character of Poirot to life in a believable and entertaining way.



The story itself is an interesting mix of archaeology, inter-personal relationships and murder.

Compulsive listening

This adaptation is brilliant achievement that keeps you actively involved from start to end. The acting is wonderfully subtle, offering some new perspectives on very familiar characters. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it with all my heart to those who want to feel good for a couple of days.

Mystery Plus Archeology

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder in Mesopotamia (Dramatised) to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed both versions. The audio edition version has merit because it brings the characters to life. It is like listening to a play.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the nurse who narrated the story. I thought the solution to the mystery was plausible but unexpected.

Have you listened to any of John Moffatt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to all of his audio book portrayals of this character. He is a very competent Hercules Poirot.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A deadly mix of mystery and archaeology.

Any additional comments?

I like the stories set in exotic locales. I also liked the archaeology aspects of the story.
