Overview


This BBC Radio full-cast dramatization stars John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot. When Poirot arrives in France, following an urgent appeal for help, he finds he is too late. His client, a South American millionaire, has been stabbed to death and his body flung into a freshly dug open grave on the golf course adjoining the property. Meanwhile the millionaire's wife is found bound and gagged in her room. Poirot launches an investigation and the baffling mystery begins to unfold.

Monsieur Renauld dies on a golf course just days after sending a plea for help to detective Poirot. Since Renauld possessed a plundered fortune, a scorned wife, a mistress, and an estranged son, there is no lack of suspects. It's up to Poirot to put the police onto the culprit before more murders occur. Reissue.

Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became the bestselling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare.

Biography

Agatha Christie is the world's best-known mystery writer. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language, and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 79 novels and a short story collection, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap, is the longest running play in history. Two of the characters she created, the brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and the irrepressible and relentless Miss Marple, went on to become world famous detectives. Both have been widely dramatized in feature films and made-for-TV movies. Agatha Christie died in 1976.

    The Agatha Christie Novel Murder on the Links

    Hercule Poirot, a detective has recived a letter of desperation from a Mister P.T. Renauld. In the letter, Poirot finds that Mister Renauld is in 'daily fear for his life.' Poirot decides to drop the case he has been summond for earlier. He and his 'side kick' rush to France to Mr. Renauld's aid. But when they get thier, they find Monsieur Rneauld has been murdered on a gold course. His job now is to find the murderer and alert the police of his warabouts. An arrest is made by the police, not confirmed by Poirot, but do they have the right man? If they don't, more people are at risk to be murdered. This book is a hard bood to understand. It would be appropriate for grades 10 and up and would appeal to a reader who loves very indepth mysteries.

    Dame Christie Twists Another Clever Crime

    Poirot and Hastings are joined together again in a mysterious plot which finds the murdered victim already in his grave. In a battle wits with the local French police, has Poirot found his match? Will Hastings find love at last? The detecting duo travel to and fro across the English Channel in search of the truth.

    I enjoyed this novel for exposing the deepening relations between Poirot and Hastings, including a falling-out between the two great friends. The mystery is, of a matter of course, superbly crafted and leads you to believe you've got it until the very last chapter, when everything comes to a dramatic and surprising end.
