9780007527533: The ABC Murders (Poirot)

This BBC Radio FullCast dramatization of one of Agatha Christie's most imaginative mysteries stars John Moffatt as the great Belgian detective, Simon Williams as his faithful sidekick Captain Hastings, and Philip Jackson as Chief Inspector Japp. 

Alice Asher, a poor, elderly shopkeeper, is murdered in Andover. Betty Barnard, a young waitress, is strangled with her own belt at BexhillonSea. Next comes Carmichael Clarke, collector of Chinese art, clubbed to death in Churston. Only in Doncaster does the pattern vary: the man found stabbed to death in the Regal Cinema is called George Earsfield. But each time, an ABC railway guide is found by the dead bodies, and each time, Poirot is warned in advance by a taunting letter from someone signed ''ABC''.

Who is ABC? And can Poirot find out in time to prevent the death of a whole alphabet of victims? The police doubt him and the public are in a state of panic, but Poirot is convinced that the murderer's luck will turn, and sooner or later he will make a crucial mistake. And Poirot will be there when he does . . .

Cast includes: Hercule Poirot: John Moffatt / Captain Hastings: Simon Williams / Chief Inspector Japp: Philip Jackson / Inspector Crome: Tom George / Franklin Clarke: John Rye / Lady Clarke: Jane Wendham / A. B. Cust: Ioan Meredith / Thora Grey: Lucy Paterson / Mary Drowner: Gemma Saunders / Megan Bernard: Beth Chalmers / Also with Christopher Kelham, Zeina HardingRoots, and Tim Treloar

From the Back Cover:

There’s a serial killer on the loose, working his way through the alphabet and the whole country is in a state of panic.

A is for Mrs. Ascher in Andover, B is for Betty Barnard in Bexhill, C is for Sir Carmichael Clarke in Churston. With each murder, the killer is getting more confident—but leaving a trail of deliberate clues to taunt the proud Hercule Poirot might just prove to be the first, and fatal, mistake.
