The Mystery of the Spanish Chest
Listen to a sample
What to expect
A classic Agatha Christie short story, available individually for the first time on audio.
Major Hastings and Hercule Poirot are not interested in the case of the Spanish Chest, so obviously has it been reported in the papers that it seems an entirely closed book. But, when Hastings persuades Poirot to attend a rather fabulous party given by Lady Chatterton there is someone sequestered upstairs waiting for the pair’s help. She’s so sure that there has been some great mistake and is desperate for their help. Will the contents of the dead man’s pockets reveal to the inscrutable eye of Hercule Poirot who the culprit is?
‘The plots are so good that one marvels … most of them would have made a full length thriller.’ Daily Mirror
