The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding: Audiobook Advent, Day Seven
It’s Day Seven of our Audiobook Advent Calendar! We know how much you love an Agatha Christie mystery, so we’ve picked a festive one…
The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding is a classic Hercule Poirot mystery set over Christmas. In the story, Poirot is invited to help an Eastern prince with some family jewels which he’s having reset as a gift for his fianceé.
However, the Prince also has a mistress. She asks to wear one particularly enchanting piece that features a huge ruby, and then disappears with it!
Poirot discovers a connection with a house party at the home of Colonel and Mrs Lacey. In order to pursue his investigation, he goes to stay with them, apparently to enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas.
With deft skill and the workings of his little grey cells, Poirot brings this case to a satisfying and festive conclusion.
