Hercule Poirot, a detective has recived a letter of desperation from a Mister P.T. Renauld. In the letter, Poirot finds that Mister Renauld is in 'daily fear for his life.' Poirot decides to drop the case he has been summond for earlier. He and his 'side kick' rush to France to Mr. Renauld's aid. But when they get thier, they find Monsieur Rneauld has been murdered on a gold course. His job now is to find the murderer and alert the police of his warabouts. An arrest is made by the police, not confirmed by Poirot, but do they have the right man? If they don't, more people are at risk to be murdered. This book is a hard bood to understand. It would be appropriate for grades 10 and up and would appeal to a reader who loves very indepth mysteries.

Poirot and Hastings are joined together again in a mysterious plot which finds the murdered victim already in his grave. In a battle wits with the local French police, has Poirot found his match? Will Hastings find love at last? The detecting duo travel to and fro across the English Channel in search of the truth. I enjoyed this novel for exposing the deepening relations between Poirot and Hastings, including a falling-out between the two great friends. The mystery is, of a matter of course, superbly crafted and leads you to believe you've got it until the very last chapter, when everything comes to a dramatic and surprising end.
