Agatha Christie is famous for creating some of the most gripping crime-filled stories of all time and her passion for a murderous tale has earned her the title of being the world’s most successful mystery writer. The queen of crime writing is at her literary best with Murder on the Links. We join our favourite Belgian detective Hercule Poirot as he attempts to solve yet another murderous spree.
This BBC Radio 4 dramatisation on CD and MP3 audiobook features a full cast, and the story is notable for its subplot as we see Poirot’s trusty sidekick Hastings meet his future wife for the first time. In the main story, the ever-quirky Poirot makes his way to France after being called upon in an urgent cry for help. Unfortunately, Poirot finds he is too late to save his wealthy South American client, whose lifeless body has been thrown into a grave dug out on a local golf course. It appears he has been stabbed and as Poirot begins to dig deeper to solve the mystery, he finds the millionaire’s wife in a less than ideal situation.
Can Poirot work out who the killer is before he strikes again? Find out in this BBC Radio 4 drama that welcomes John Moffatt back once again as the voice of the eccentric Hercule Poirot. A must-have addition for any Christie audiobook collection.
