Whilst organising a mock murder hunt for the village fete hosted by Sir George and Lady Stubbs, a feeling of dread settles on the famous crime novelist Adriane Oliver. Call it instinct, but it's a feeling she just can't explain...or get away from.
In desperation she summons her old friend, Hercule Poirot - and her instincts are soon proved correct when the "pretend" murder victim is discovered playing the scene for real, a rope wrapped tightly around her neck.
But it's the great detective who first discovers that in murder hunts, whether mock or real, everyone is playing a part."

I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
I have read lots of Agatha Christie novels as they are pretty dependable as a good read. This was one of my favourites. Very enjoyable with some good, unexpected twists. Highly recommended.
I wouldn't rate this as one of my favorite Poirot adventures but David Suchet brought the characters to life with such flair that I chuckled repeatedly over the variety of personalities he created with Christi's talent. It was a jolly listen.
