This adaptation of The Murder on the Links, a classic Agatha Christie whodunit, to a vintage radio drama format is absolutely delicious. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss how this totally diverting Golden Age mystery comes to life on audio, complete with sound effects and perfectly balanced music. Alfred Molina’s Poirot is punctilious and obsessive, but also warm and funny as he sorts out a blindingly baroque murder plot and keeps insisting the answer is totally obvious.
Support for Behind the Mic comes from Naxos AudioBooks. P.C. Wren’s Beau Geste, read by Rupert Degas: “If you like adventure novels, please, do yourself a favor and pick up this audiobook…You will not be disappointed…I believe that I may listen to Beau Geste again.”
