Hercule Poirot Series, Book 10
Borrow Borrow

In Agatha Christie's classic, Three Act Tragedy, the normally unflappable Hercule Poirot faces his most baffling investigation: the seemingly motiveless murder of the thirteenth guest at dinner party, who choked to death on a cocktail containing not a trace of poison.

Sir Charles Cartwright should have known better than to allow thirteen guests to sit down for dinner. For at the end of the evening one of them is dead—choked by a cocktail that contained no trace of poison.

Predictable, says Hercule Poirot, the great detective. But entirely unpredictable is that he can find absolutely no motive for murder....

About the Author-
  • Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in English and another billion in a hundred foreign languages. She died in 1976.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine In Act I, at a dinner party given by a famed British actor, one of the guests drops dead. In Act II, at a second dinner, which includes some of the same guests, another death occurs. Two dead men may equal murder. One of the guests, Hercule Poirot, follows suspects (often literally) and clues, both real and "staged," to bring the curtain down on the killer. Andrew Sachs gives this minor Christie vigor and authenticity, even to an unoriginal motive. His Poirot is methodical, polite, and perfectly accented, but sounds like other Poirots. Sachs's best interpretations are those of the actor's young fiancée and the killer. M.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine
