Someone has poisoned wealthy Emily Inglethorp. But who? And how? Everyone suspects Emily's young husband, Alfred ... and Alfred seems to be actually trying to get arrested and charged. But why? And why did Emily draw up a new will on the day of her death, only to burn it in the fireplace a few hours later? The murderer has been clever ... but not clever enough to deceive Hercule Poirot!
Poirot comes to France in response to a desperate plea for help to find his client already murdered -- stabbed in the back and lying in an open grave. Brusque, arrogant Inspector Giraud thinks he knows who did it. But is the killer really the dead man's own son? And what does the victim's enigmatic neighbor, the mysterious Madame Daubreuil, have to do with it? Captain Hastings is baffled ... but Poirot is on the case.
