In a picturesque British village, a fun-filled Halloween party for young teens culminates with the murder of a girl found drowned in an apple-bobbing tub. John Moffat delivers a strong and accomplished performance. Especially provocative is his portrayal of Christie\'s hero, Hercule Poirot, as he calculates, hypothesizes and interrogates one peculiar suspect after another. Moffatt intelligently assesses each suspect, carefully providing insightful portrayals of emotional complications, personality flaws and greedy motives.

A classic later Agatha Christie, featuring Hercule Poirot and the mystery novelist Ariadne Oliver. From the back cover, "A child boasted of having witnessed a murder. Only a few hours later, that child was dead..."

Hercule Poirot and the novelist Ariadne Oliver feature in this one. It comes with mythological references, children who see but are not believed, haunting atmosphere-lots of good stuff.

Not bad, just semi-predictable

Maybe I'm just catching on, but I felt I was one step ahead basically the whole book. & the "big reveal" at the end was not a shock to me. This wasn't as brilliant as some of Christie's other novels, but it's still worth a read.

Ah, Points authoress friend ropes him into another case. At a halloween party, a young girl claims to have witnessed a murder years ago. No one believes her. But then she is dead: drowned in the apple-bobbing tub. So begins Poirots quest for an old murder. Interrogation after interrogation (Keep tabs on the myriad of players.) seem to lead nowhere. One good murder deserves another. Ding dong, pussys in the well. Finally he is able to put it together in a startling conclusion. If you figure out who the murderer is, you will still get some surprises at the end.

I adore Agatha Christie and Hercule Poirot. This was my first audio cd and I was stunned by the performance of John Moffatt. I am keeping my eyes out for more from him as well as getting tons more Agatha Christie cds. they are great to listen to going to and from work. :)

This is the only story written by Agatha Christie that I have read. I had guessed 2 possible murderers from the beginning, and though many other characters were introduced afterwards and threw me off the scent a couple of times, I narrowed it down to one and I was correct. However, I was totally off on the manner in which it occurred and the reason it happened at all. Though some parts seemed to drag a bit, I enjoyed my intro to AC. It was a lot of fun guessing who the murderer might be, and I especially loved the timing of this book club pick - perfect for the upcoming Halloween festivities!
