    A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as the great Belgian detective. Hercule Poirot and his good friend Captain Hastings are enjoying a well-deserved break on the Cornish Riviera, in the idyllic village of St Loo. Wandering along the terrace of the Hotel Majestic on the first morning of their stay, Poirot literally falls at the feet of a pretty, dark-haired girl and, much to Hastings’ delight, insists that she join them for a cocktail.

    Story

    I have now read the fifth book out of the 6-part series and am looking forward to the 6th with mixed emotions. On one hand I look forward to finding out how Ms Beaton ends the series, however sad that now this run is over.
    I recommend these books to someone who enjoys light regency romantic stories, with a sense of humour. These are well-written with interesting historic details and a flavour of what it might be like to have lived in those times.
    The narrator is out-standing.

    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me—well, actually, my true love, Darcy O’Mara, is spending a feliz navidad tramping around South America. Meanwhile, Mummy is holed up in a tiny village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.

    It's spring in the tiny, forgotten village; buds are on the trees, and the first flowers are struggling through the newly thawed earth. But not everything is meant to return to life. When some villagers decide to celebrate Easter with a séance at the Old Hadley House, they are hoping to rid the town of its evil - until one of their party dies of fright.

    This book was a disappointment to me. I was not able to finish it. When the story line emerges from the minute details and convoluted ideas, it is quite good. Unfortunately this does not happen very often.

    I was unable to finish listening to this story. It did not engage my interest. If a person is really into Hamlet and minutia associated with this play then they may enjoy this book The writing is laborious to follow. Very wordy almost as if the author was paid by the number words and convoluted & complex grammatical sentence that were used. So difficult to tease out the gist of the story and to follow it.

    From London to Cornwall, then to Italy and France, a short, shabby priest takes on bandits, traitors, and killers. Why is he so successful? The reason is that, after years spent in the priesthood, Father Brown knows human nature and is not afraid of its dark side. Thus he understands criminal motivation and how to deal with it.
