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 boastful little girl at a party announces that she witnessed a murder-a murder that the police of peaceful Woodleigh Common insist never took place.
But when the same little girl is found drowned later that night, there is every reason to believe her...
Hercule Poirot, the canny Belgian detective, doesn't take kindly to murder. His shrewd deductions lead him to a years-old web of shocking intrigue and wrongful death-just moments before the killer strikes again!
Probably the most unusual Poirot mystery I have ever read.
