Still in the formative years of his career, Hercule Poirot faces a most taxing case: who killed Lord Cronshaw? Was Coco Courtenay's death on the same night a mere coincidence? And did she deliberately take an overdose of cocaine?
No sooner has Poirot revealed his astonishing conclusions, than he must turn his powers of deduction to seventeen other whirlwind mysteries.
With every case in this collection, Poirot enhances his reputation as the greatest mind in detective fiction.
