A full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of an Agatha Christie story. On a flight from Le Bourget to Croydon, on which Hercule Poirot is an apprehensive passenger, a woman is found dead. A doctor on board is inclined to put it down to a wasp-sting, but Poirot suspects that a poisoned dart is the real cause - and, perhaps rather too conveniently, a blow pipe is discovered stuffed down the back of his seat.
Clearly, the murder can only have been committed by one of the passengers or crew on the plane. But which one? Poirot, Japp, and M. Fournier of the Surete will make their way through shoals of red herrings before reaching an utterly unexpected conclusion.

I'm a huge fan of all the BBC radio full-cast adaptations of Dame Agatha's books.
Check out the BBC version of "Murder in Mesopotamia" for another winner.
John Moffatt's Poirot is wonderfully fun.
I loved how Poirot took an interest in the love life of the lovely Miss Grey.
I like the full-cast of voices and the sound effects in the background. I really like John Moffat as Poirot. Everyone read their parts well. This was a totally enjoyable listen as are all of the Agatha Christie BBC full-cast radio dramatizations.
"Yet Another Excellent Poirot Production"
As I have the full HP collection, I say once more, if you love your Agatha Christie, you will enjoy these excellent full cast drama's.
John Moffat makes the perfect radio Hercule, along with the professional cast who bring to life Christie and at her best.
I wish there were more, I have them all & I want more 😊
"Those little grey cells....."
...do it again! Wonderfully dramatised. It really has it all, atmospheric and a great story acted out to perfection.
Heartily recommend for a very relaxing listen.
