It is 16 years later, but Hercule Poirot just can't get that nursery rhyme out of his mind.

Agatha Christie loves to present brilliant character studies. Five Little Pigs is one of the most powerful examples, as it is a fascinating study of a long-dead person through the eyes of five completely different and opposing characters.
The Narrator gives a wonderful performance, giving you the essence of each character with a distinctive 'voice'.
I love a good murder mystery, but I love character studies even more, and his book delivers both in style.
"An excellent Poirot story"
Poirot sets out to discover what really happened in a murder case sixteen years earlier. Did the woman who had been convicted for poisoning her husband actually do the crime? And if not which of the five other major characters could it be and why? I really enjoy this story, even repeated it has a lot to offer because it gives you the chance to really listen to the evidence and work backwards. However, for those coming to this story new all the clues are there for you to solve the crime yourself. Enjoy!
