"Murder in the Mews" by Agatha Christie. Read by Nigel Hawthorne. Listen for Pleasure. A long short story, unabridged, starring Hercule Poirot and his dense pal Inspector Japp, exploring an apparent murder crudely disguised as suicide--or not, as the case may be. Unfortunately Hawthorne makes vocal cartoons of Poirot, Japp and the lesser characters, sounding in sum like a graduation exercise at an acting school. The Christie story, with its twists and surprises, survives. Just. 1/2
