In this exclusive authorized edition from the Queen of Mystery, a dead heiress on a train, a murdered recluse, and a wealthy playboy slain at a costume ball are but a few of the unfortunate victims of confounding crimes that Poirot investigates.
A beautiful heiress has been found dead on a train. A playboy has been stabbed through the heart during a costume ball. An elderly woman suspects that she is being slowly poisoned to death. A prince fears for his reputation when his fianc e is embroiled in another man's murder. A forgotten recluse makes headlines after he is shot in the head.
Who but Agatha Christie could concoct such canny crimes? Who but Belgian detective Hercule Poirot could possibly solve them? It's a challenge to be met--in a triumph of detection.
