Hannahs second estate-sanctioned addition to Agatha Christies Hercule Poirot finds the brilliant, amusingly self-centered Belgian sleuth in 1929, attending a house party from hell. Neither he nor Scotland Yard Insp. Edward Catchpool, the novels thoughtful narrator and Poirots friend, know why theyve been invited by Lady Athelinda Playford to her County Cork mansion in the Irish Free State. Other guests include Athies children, their significant others, her attorneys, and her ailing secretary. When Athie announces shes drafted a new will leaving everything to her secretary, Poirot and Catchpool realize their presence is intended to keep the peace. Someone commits murder regardless, and the detecting duo must determine whodunit. Hannahs entertaining pastiche is brim-full of character interactions, backstories, smart chat, and diabolical twists of plot, most of which Rhind-Tutt, performing as Catchpool, delivers in the cool, measured voice of a professional Yard observer. There are moments, however, when the inspectors almost steely British reserve gives way to self-doubt, anger, sorrow, and even petulance, and Rhind-Tutt shifts his narration accordingly. As for Poirot, Rhind-Tutts rendition resembles that of the sleuths longtime television interpreter, David Suchet. A wise man doesnt meddle with perfection. A Morrow hardcover. (Sept.)
