Product Description

Review

“The answer to the riddle is brilliant.” (Times Literary Supplement (London))

“A brilliant piece of detective fiction, in which character plays an important part.” (Daily Telegraph (London))

“Straightforward bamboozling from start to finish.” (New Statesman (UK))

“As usual, Mrs. Christie hoaxes us with a double twist at the denouement, and provides excellent entertainment.” (Punch (UK))

“Agatha Christie never fails us, and her Five Little Pigs presents a very pretty problem for the ingenious reader.” (Manchester Guardian (UK))

From the Back Cover

Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoningher husband, but just like the nursery rhyme, therewere five other “little pigs” who could have done it:Philip Blake (the stockbroker), who went to market;Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist), who stayedat home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcée), whohad her roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devotedgoverness), who had none; and Angela Warren (thedisfigured sister), who cried all the way home.

Sixteen years later, Caroline’s daughter is determinedto prove her mother’s innocence, and Poirotjust can’t get that nursery rhyme out of his mind.

From AudioFile

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.
