‘He was murdered, wasn’t he?’
As the listener gatecrashes the family gathering of ‘After the Funeral’, this ominous question is brazenly ignored by everyone present – and so begins one of Agatha Christie’s darkest and most twisted stories. After the wealthy Richard Abernethie’s funeral, his remaining family gathers to learn about the distribution of his riches. Those present are used to the incongruous Cora’s tactlessness and quickly dismiss her query.
That is, until death strikes the family again. This time, the murder is brutal and unequivocal. With suspicions mounting and fear building within the family, the indomitable Hercule Poirot is called upon to investigate and find out the truth behind the unsolved deaths. Can he get to the bottom of the mystery before any more family blood is spilled?
This BBC Radio adaptation of Agatha Christie’s bestselling detective novel (now finally available on CD or MP3 audiobook format) puts a tastefully modern spin on the original novel, which was first published over half a century ago. Fans of crime fiction and murder mysteries will delight in this exceptional full-cast dramatisation, starring the charismatic John Moffatt as Britain’s favourite moustachioed detective.
