Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, but just like the nursery rhyme, there were five other "little pigs" who could have done it: Philip Blake (the stockbroker), who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist), who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcEe), who had her roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess), who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister), who cried all the way home. Sixteen years later, Caroline's daughter is determined to prove her mother's innocence, and Poirot just can't get that nursery rhyme out of his mind.

Professional reviews

"Hugh Fraser is Captain Hastings in BBC Television's productions of the Hercule Poirot stories. As it turns out, he can also read a Hercule Poirot story very well indeed. For BBC fans, his Poirot sounds remarkably like David Suchet's version of the role--short, round, precise, and Belgian. He also gives oral definition to the other widely varying characters-- everyone from a ride-to-the-hounds country fellow to an impoverished, very particular retired nanny. It all concerns the death of famous painter Amyas Crane. Sixteen years earlier, his wife was imprisoned for murdering him. She died in prison. Her now grown daughter believes that her mother may have been innocent. But was she? Poirot, ably supported by Hugh Fraser, will find out. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
