    Enjoy this classic mystery on its 75th anniversary! The Thin Man introduces Nick and Nora Charles, New York's coolest crime-solving couple. Nick retired from detecting after his wife inherited a tidy sum, but six years later a pretty blonde spies him at a speakeasy and asks for his help finding her father, an eccentric inventor who was once Nick's client. Nick can no more resist the case than a morning cocktail or a good fight, and soon he and Nora are caught in a complicated web of confused identities.

    Nurse Amy Leatheran is recruited to care for the frightened wife of an American archeologist at an excavation in the Iraqi desert. Are the wife's fears mere hallucinations? When she is found bludgeoned to death, her paranoia proves - too late - fully justified. Famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, nearby on another mission, gets involved and realizes that every member of the team could be a suspect. Can Poirot stop the murderer before he or she strikes again?

    Elisa says: "Murder in Mesopotamia"
    "Terrible Narration."

    Any AC book narrated by Hugh Fraiser has been outstanding.

    NO


    Would you be willing to try another one of Anna Massey???s performances?

    Absolutely not


    What character would you cut from Murder in Mesopotamia?

    Couldn't finish the story
