In Agatha Christie's classic puzzler Taken at the Flood, the indefatigable Hercule Poiroit investigates the troubling case of a twice-widowed woman. A few weeks after marrying an attractive widow, Gordon Cloade is tragically killed by a bomb blast in the London blitz. Overnight, the former Mrs. Underhay finds herself in sole possession of the Cloade family fortune. Shortly afterward, Hercule Poirot receives a visit from the dead man's sister-in-law who claims she has been warned by "spirits" that Mrs. Underhay's first husband is still alive. Poirot has his suspicions when he is asked to find a missing person guided only by the spirit world. Yet what mystifies Poirot most is the woman's true motive for approaching him..

Professional reviews

"This classic Christie, originally published as THERE IS A TIDE, opens with Hercule Poirot in a London club, where he overhears a story that later helps to sort out a tangled murder case. Hugh Fraser, known to PBS "Mystery" fans in the role of Poirot's sidekick, Captain Hastings, is elegant in the voices of the gentry-- sowing bewilderment and an undercurrent of guilt to keep readers wondering to the end just who may be the villains. Fraser is equally deft in portraying the village folk and the Irish gate-crashers who married into the Cloade family and won the family fortune when a bomb in the London Blitz killed patriarch Gordon Cloade.
