9780007172498: Taken at the Flood: Complete & Unabridged

Part of the new look for Hercule Poirot titles for the 21st century.

Read by Hugh Fraser, who plays Captain Hastings in the popular TV series.

A few weeks after marrying an attractive young widow, Gordon Cloade is tragically killed by a bomb blast in the London blitz. Overnight, the former Mrs Underhay finds herself in sole possession of the Cloade family fortune.

Shortly afterwards, Hercule Poirot receives a visit from the dead man’s sister-in-law who claims she has been warned by ‘spirits’ that Mrs Underhay’s first husband is still alive. Poirot has his suspicions when he is asked to find a missing person guided only by the spirit world. Yet what mystifies Poirot most is the woman’s true motive for approaching him…

Review:

‘One of the best… her gift for blending the cosy with the macabre has seldom been more in evidence than it is here.’
Elizabeth Bowen, Tatler

‘Told briskly, vivaciously, and with ever-fertile imagination.’
Manchester Evening News

‘One of the better Christies… Don’t miss.’
New York Herald Tribune

From the Back Cover:

'"There's a tide in the affairs of man which, taken at the flood, leads onto fortune…"

'The unfortunate Gordon Cloade's fortune to be precise. Killed in a bombing raid during London's Blitz, his entire fortune has passed to his young wife, the former Mrs Underhay.

Gordon's blood relatives are less than happy, however – so, it seems, are 'the spirits' who have communicated their doubts to Hercule Poirot.

Caught between a fortune and some hard-up relations, Poirot must do all he can to prevent Rosaleen joining her detractors on 'the other side'…

"Told briskly, vivaciously, and with ever-fertile imagination"
'Manchester Evening News'
