Description

Suspicious events at a Middle Eastern archaeological excavation site intrigue the great Hercule Poirot as he investigates Murder in Mesopotamia, a classic murder mystery from Agatha Christie.

Amy Leatheram has never felt the lure of the mysterious East, but when she travels to an ancient site deep in the Iraqi desert to nurse the wife of a celebrated archaeologist, events prove stranger than she could ever have imagined. Her patient's bizarre visions and nervous terror seem unfounded, but as the oppressive tension in the air thickens, events come to a terrible climax—in murder.
With one spot of blood as his only clue, Hercule Poirot must embark on a journey not just across the desert, but into the darkest crevices of the human soul to unravel a mystery which taxes even his remarkable powers.

      • content: Ever so slightly over the top, but loads of fun--one thinks that Christie would have approved. At an archaeological site in the Iraqi desert, the wife of the lead archaeologist suffers from nervous terrors that her former husband is coming to get her. Tensions mount, a death occurs, and Hercule Poirot, who is traveling in the Middle East, is asked to solve it all. The actors have a great time, and so does the listener. John Moffat's Poirot is precise and peculiarly charming. The wife is clearly spooked. Her husband impatient, but concerned. Sound effects of everything from horses' hoofs to creaking doors enhance the experience, and mood-inducing Eastern music floats throughout. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True

      • content: Agatha Christie's mystery dates from her days sojourning with her archaeologist husband. The archaeologist's wife at this dig is agitated by threatening letters from her first husband, who is presumed dead. Then she's murdered in a locked room. Hercule Poirot, conveniently in the area, amiably cogitates and vocally ruminates over the motive for her death, only to be confounded by a second murder. Who done it? This BBC performance has a full cast of voices and sound effects to tell the tale. Insects buzz and hum, stones crunch during walks and music signals changes in scenes. Rustling paper, scratchy voices and intense dialogue enthrall the listener until the surprising end. M.B.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This Hercule Poirot mystery finds the popular detective at an archaeological site. The fears of the wife of the expedition's leader are proven true when she is murdered. This story is told through the narrative voice of a nurse who was hired to ease those fears and who then takes on the role of assisting Poirot. Anna Massey keeps the pace moving well and use accents to characterize this diverse group. Some are better than others--the American accents are rather strained, and Poirot a bit exaggerated. But in each case, the characters are distinct and easily distinguishable. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine
