9780007274598: Sad Cypress

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatization starring John Moffatt as the great Belgian detective

Elinor Carlisle and Roddy Welman are the model English couple, perfect companions set for a life of ease when they inherit Aunt Laura s considerable fortune. But a poison-pen letter begins a chain of events that is to end in tragedy.

Convinced that Mary Gerrard, a childhood playmate of Elinor s, is attempting to ingratiate herself with her aunt for financial gain, the pair travel to the family home to investigate. They find no evidence, but Roddy falls desperately in love with the beautiful Mary, little realizing that beneath Elinor s restrained and unemotional exterior lies an almost obsessive passion for him.

Elinor obeys her aunt s deathbed wish despite her heartbreak and gives Mary a large bequest from the estate. But when Mary is found poisoned, the evidence against Elinor is damning. It s up to Hercule Poirot to find out if the case is as simple as it seems."

About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
