9780002318167: THREE ACT TRAGEDY (AGATHA CHRISTIE COLLECTION S.)

Sir Charles Cartwright should have known better than to allow thirteen guests to sit down for dinner. For at the end of the evening one of them is dead choked by a cocktail that contained no trace of poison.

Predictable, says Hercule Poirot, the great detective. But entirely unpredictable is that he can find absolutely no motive for murder. "

About the Author:

Dame Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was a British crime writer best known for her detective novels and short stories. According to Guinness World Records, she is the best-selling novelist of all time, her novels having sold over four billion copies and having been translated into more than one hundred languages. The Agatha Award for best mystery and crime writers was named in her honor.



Hugh Fraser is an English actor and theater director who is best known for his portrayal of Captain Hastings in the television series Agatha Christie's Poirot. He studied acting at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art and is currently an associate tutor, director, and member of the audition panel at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, specializing in Shakespeare.

From AudioFile:

In Act I, at a dinner party given by a famed British actor, one of the guests drops dead. In Act II, at a second dinner, which includes some of the same guests, another death occurs. Two dead men may equal murder. One of the guests, Hercule Poirot, follows suspects (often literally) and clues, both real and "staged," to bring the curtain down on the killer. Andrew Sachs gives this minor Christie vigor and authenticity, even to an unoriginal motive. His Poirot is methodical, polite, and perfectly accented, but sounds like other Poirots. Sachs's best interpretations are those of the actor's young fiancée and the killer. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
