But she begins to suspect that someone is manipulating the scenario of her game and fears that something very sinister is being planned. She sends for her old friend Hercule Poirot.
At first, he is not inclined to take her very seriously, but soon a series of events propels him to change his mind. Then suddenly, all Ariadne’s worst fears are realised when the girl playing the part of the murder victim is found strangled in the boat-house. For Hercule Poirot, the Murder Hunt has become a grim reality.

They Cut Too Much Out
- Stephanie L. Thompson
Entertaining Full-Cast Dramatization
Yes. I fully enjoyed the full cast and the music and sound effects. All the actors did a great job at telling this mystery story.
Dead Man's Folly features both Hercule Poirot and Ariadne Oliver which was delightful to have them working together to solve the mystery.
Overall, a fine cast, well produced and an enjoyable listen.
