18 Voices from the Act on Radio players introduce Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot.
Styles Court was quiet during "The Great War", and a great place for Arthur Hastings to get a little R & R while recovering from a war wound. That is, it wask, until the morning of July 18th when the household woke up to find that elderly Emily Inglethorp, the wealthy owner, has died of strychnine poisoning.
Who did it? Many conflicting clues point at several people including Emily's new husband, Alfred Inglethorp, who refuses to provide an alibi. Tests soon prove that the obvious method of delivering the strychnine can be ruled out. How was she poisoned? It seems impossible. Perhaps Hastings's old friend, a retired Belgian Police detective Hercule Poirot, can help sort out the clues, and discover... "who did it?"
