A BBC Radio full-cast dramatization starring John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot, with Stephanie Cole and Donald Sinden. Hercule Poirot, along with three other luminaries from the world of crime detection, is invited to dinner by the renowned London socialite Dr. Shaitana. Also on the guest list are four members of what Shaitana calls his Black Museum--a collection of murderers who have each succeeded in "getting away with it." After midnight, when the guests prepare to leave, they make a terrible discovery. Their host is dead in his armchair, stabbed in the chest. The four sleuths are thus faced with one murder and a quartet of likely suspects. Working both together and independently, they investigate the past of the Black Museum's finest in order to determine the most likely killer. Poirot finds that many distractions are thrown in his way, as he attempts to read the meaning of the cards which each suspect has placed on the table.

I love Agatha Christie, but this was one of her more boring works. It picked up near the end, but before that I was honestly considering returning it. Not only that but there were quite a few unanswered questions that really bothered me.

And on the audiobook side, the narrator was decent but not as good as the narrator for Murder at the Vicarage, which I consider to be the Gold Standard of Christie Audiobooks. He also had a tendency to mumble once or twice, which meant I missed a few snippets of dialogue, but nothing that sounded very important. I will say that the man's Poirot voice was very good.
