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.
