A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as the great Belgian detective with Simon Williams and Philip Jackson.
Alice Ascher, a poor, elderly shopkeeper, is murdered in Andover. Betty Barnard, a young waitress, is strangled with her own belt at Bexhill-on-Sea.
Next comes Carmichael Clarke, collector of Chinese art, clubbed to death in Churston. Only in Doncaster does the pattern vary: the man found stabbed in the Regal Cinema is called George Earsfield. But each time, an ABC railway guide is found by the dead bodies, and each time, Poirot is warned in advance by a taunting letter from someone signed 'ABC'.
Who is ABC? And can Poirot find out in time to prevent the death of a whole alphabet of victims? The police doubt him, and the public are in a state of panic, but Poirot is convinced that the murderer's luck will turn, and sooner or later he will make a crucial mistake. And Poirot will be there when he does...

Good plot. Not overly confusing and keeps the suspense going. Actors were good and portrayed story well. Not one of my most favourite plots but a good listen. I actually figured out who the murder was towards the end a first for me!
"Exemplary First Class A.B.C Murders"
This is a first class production of the A.B.C Murders which keeps you gripped to your seat as the great sleuth goes merrily about his business.
The Cast, Acting Skills, Production & Soundtrack are exemplary. John Moffat is 'The' Radio Poirot' & many a times I listen to John all day, all night & always want more. Johns mannerisms are perfect.
I have the full Agatha Christie Audible sets: Poriot, Miss Marple & all
Agatha Christies other works in my collection & I wish there were more.
