Description
Hercule Poirot and his good friend Captain Hastings are enjoying a well-deserved break on the Cornish Riviera. Wandering along the terrace of the Hotel Majestic on the first morning of their stay, Poirot literally falls at the feet of a pretty, dark-haired girl and, much to Hastings' delight, insists that she join them for a cocktail. The girl is Nick Buckley, last in a long line of Buckleys to live at End House, an isolated old place perched on the end of a rocky outcrop. As she chats to them, Poirot's ears prick up - Nick mentions that she has had several near-fatal accidents in the past few days. First the brakes on her car failed, then as she was going down to the beach to bathe, a boulder came crashing downhill, just missing her. To Poirot, that is more than coincidence. And when Nick jerks away from a passing bee that turns out to be a bullet, he knows there is work ahead for his little grey cells. The perpetrator of these 'accidents' may well be endlessly inventive and diabolically clever, but is he or she a match for the meticulous M. Poirot? This full-cast dramatisation of Agatha Christie's absorbing mystery stars John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot, with Simon Williams, Gemma Saunders and Suzanna Hamilton.

shortDescription

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

Hercule Poirot and his good friend Captain Hastings are enjoying a well-deserved break on the Cornish Riviera, in the idyllic village of St Loo. Wandering along the terrace of the Hotel Majestic on the first morning of their stay, Poirot literally falls at the feet of a pretty, dark-haired girl and, much to Hastings' delight, insists that she join them for a cocktail.

The girl is Nick Buckley, last in a long line of Buckleys to live at End House, an isolated old place perched on the end of a rocky outcrop. As she reassures the two friends that living there is more fun than it might seem, Poirot's ears prick up - she is having fun, Nick says, despite the fact that she has had three near-fatal accidents in the past few days. To Poirot, that adds up to more than coincidence. And when Nick jerks away from a bee flying past that turns out to be a bullet, the Belgian knows there is work...
