A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatization starring John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot

In this delightful tale, an Eastern Prince arrives in England with some family jewels which he s having reset as a gift for his fiancee. However, the Prince also has a mistress; she asks to wear one particularly enchanting piece that features a huge ruby, and then promptly disappears with it.

Poirot discovers a connection with a house party at the home of Coloneland Mrs Lacey, and in order to pursue his investigation an invitation is procured for him to the Laceys, ostensibly to enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas.With deft skill and the workings of his little grey cells, Poirot brings this case to a satisfying and festive conclusion.Starring John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot, with Donald Sinden and Sian Phillipsas Colonel and Mrs Lacey"

Product Description:

First came a sinister warning to Poirot not to eat any plum pudding. Then the discovery of a corpse in a chest. Next, an overheard quarrel that led to murder. All in all, five baffling cases for the detective. Also includes a bonus story - "Greenshaw's Folly", starring the indomitable Miss Marple.

About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
