Publisher's Summary

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.

Vintage Christie

Where does Death in the Clouds (Dramatised) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'm a huge fan of all the BBC radio full-cast adaptations of Dame Agatha's books.

What other book might you compare Death in the Clouds (Dramatised) to and why?

Check out the BBC version of "Murder in Mesopotamia" for another winner.

Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

John Moffatt's Poirot is wonderfully fun.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved how Poirot took an interest in the love life of the lovely Miss Grey.

Outstanding Full-Cast Audio Production

What did you love best about Death in the Clouds (Dramatised)?

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.

Excellent Christie Takes You Sky High

As I own the full collection of Agatha Christie’s Radio works, I can repeat myself no more but will say; this is typical of what to expect and fulfils and ticks all the right boxes. As with all of Christie’s plays, these are so good that you will listen to them over and over and still enjoy them as you did the first time and will listen again.

These plays are beautifully produced & directed. They are full casts brought to life by some of the top names in film and theatre. John Moffat plays a perfect radio Hercule. Of course, for TV David Suchet is the true Master of the kinky moustached sleuth. If you love Agatha Christie you will love and enjoy these.
