There's a serial killer on the loose, working his way through the alphabet and the whole country is in a state of panic. A is for Mrs. Ascher in Andover, B is for Betty Barnard in Bexhill, C is for Sir Carmichael Clarkein Churston. With each murder, the killer is getting more confident - but leaving a trail of deliberate clues to taunt the proud Hercule Poirot might just prove to be the first, and fatal, mistake.

Professional reviews

"Hugh Fraser will be familiar to listeners from the excellent PBS "Mystery" adaptations of Hercule Poirot novels in which he played the intrepid Hastings. Consequently, he makes a wonderful narrator here. These Audio Editions Mysteries cannot be recommended highly enough for quality of material and great performances at affordable prices. In this complicated maze of a mystery, people are dying in alphabetical order. Poirot knows there must be a method to this madness and digs deep to uncover a motive. Fraser is perfection itself at painting the tiny portraits of diverse individuals. Christie ties the whole canvas together to tell a complete story. To enter a world she has created is to escape your own for at least awhile, and, as is the case with any great vacation, you'll be longing for the next time you can get away . . . with murder. D.G.
