The Adventure Of Christmas Pudding CD-Audio edition by Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became the bestselling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare.
Agatha Christie's most daring crime mystery - an early and particularly brilliant outing of Hercule Poirot, `The Murder of Roger Ackroyd', with its legendary twist, changed the detective fiction genre for ever.
When Mrs Spenlow is murdered in St Mary Mead, the village gossips all agree that her husband must have killed her - until Miss Marple is called as an alibi... Miss Marple investigates the problem of a lady's maid who has been mysteriously sacked - while also helping her crime writer nephew Raymond West to cure his writer's block.
Tyrannical millionaire Simeon Lee has been estranged from most of his family for years. Rushing upstairs, they discover a shocking sight: Simeon Lee is lying in a pool of blood, his throat cut. With so many possible suspects, it is lucky for Superintendent Sugden that the Chief Constable has his old friend Hercule Poirot staying with him.
Hercule Poirot, along with three other luminaries from the world of crime detection, is invited to dinner by the renowned London socialite Dr Shaitana. Also on the guest list are four members of what Shaitana calls his Black Museum - a collection of murderers who have each succeeded in 'getting away with it'.
Poirot has always hated visiting the dentist, but this time his check-up is painless and soon over. She catches one of the buckles on the taxi door and wrenches it off, and as Poirot hands it back, he is reminded of the children's rhyme 'One, two, buckle my shoe'.
When Poirot arrives in France, following an urgent appeal for help, he finds he is too late. As Poirot investigates, the mystery begins to unfold - but not before another murder occurs... John Moffatt stars as Poirot, with Jeremy Clyde as Captain Hastings, Madeline Smith as Dulcie Duveen and Stephen Tompkinson as Jack.
A millionaire strikes a deal on the seedier side of Paris and gives to his heartsick daughter, Ruth Kettering, the 'Heart of Fire', one of the world's legendary jewels that once adorned the crown of the Tsars.
Young Gwenda Reed arrives in England from New Zealand, travelling ahead of her husband Giles and charged with the task of finding the perfect place to make their base. Wanting porch stairs, Gwenda hires a builder to put them in - only to find some old steps, covered up by bushes.
Famous crime novelist Ariadne Oliver, visiting her friend Judith Butler in the little town of Woodleigh Common, is invited to a Hallowe'en Party put on by society hostess Mrs Rowena Drake for the local teenagers. Distraught, Ariadne decides to call upon the services of her old friend Hercule Poirot to solve the case.
