Nurse Amy Leatheran is recruited to care for Louise Leidner, the terrified wife of an American archeologist at an excavation in the Iraqi desert. Louise thinks that someone is going to kill her, and her paranoia soon unsettles the entire dig. Are her fears mere hallucinations? The answer comes when she's found bludgeoned to death. Nurse Leatheran enlists the aid of Hercule Poirot, who quickly suspects every member of the team. Can the dapper detective stop the murderer before the next tragedy? Anna Massey's authoritative reading brings out the drama and humor in Christie's popular whodunit.
