Publisher's Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot.

When Poirot arrives in France, following an urgent appeal for help, he finds he is too late. His client, a South American millionaire, has been stabbed to death and his body flung into a freshly dug open grave on the golf course adjoining the property.

Meanwhile the millionaire's wife is found bound and gagged in her room. Poirot launches an investigation and the baffling mystery begins to unfold.

Great Listen

This story really was amazing. I never caught on to who the murder was and the further into the story it got the more I enjoyed it and felt the intensity to it. Great performance and wonderful book.

Love hasting.

What did you love best about Murder on the Links (Dramatised)?

I love all books with hasting in. I especially like this one as we meet the gal who Hastings gets with.

Very enjoyable

I am probably not a good source for an opinion on the BBC radio dramatizations of Agatha Christie's works because I find them all absolutely marvelous theatre of the mind.

Poirot and Hastings, of course.

SLEUTH IN FRANCE

Intriguing array of characters and trails encountered by Poirot in his quest to solve the crimes using his little grey cells. Romance has a place, too. In my opinion this is one of Christie's best stories with a well chosen cast for the dramatised series by the BBC.

Good acting

a bit of a tricky plot to follow but written very well and played out just as well.

Another Christie Hit

The famous 60’s & 70’s singer/songwriter Jeremy Clyde plays Hastings in this wonderful murder mystery set in France (yes
France) with John Moffat his usual perfect radio radiant Hercule P.
I am more familiar with this story as part of the TV Poirot but this is just as good even though some of the characters are slightly diffident in this production. Another fine hit!
