Overview

When Poirot arrives in France, following an urgent appeal for help, he finds he is too late. His client, a South American millionaire, has been stabbed to death and his body flung into a freshly dug open grave on the golf course adjoining the property. Meanwhile the millionaire's wife is found bound and gagged in her room. Her wrists are badly cut and she seems to be in shock, but she agrees to speak to Poirot. She tells him that they were attacked by thugs who tied her up and forced her husband to leave the house, dressed only in his underwear, before brutally killing him. Poirot is not sure whether to believe her story. Did she, as the sole beneficiary of her millionaire husband's estate, set the whole thing up? And if not, who did kill M. Renauld? The suspects include the mysterious Dulcie Duveen and Renauld's son Jack, who had quarreled violently with his father. As Poirot investigates, the mystery begins to unfold—but not before another murder occurs. . . John Moffatt stars as Poirot, with Jeremy Clyde as Captain Hastings, Madeline Smith as Dulcie Duveen, and Stephen Tompkinson as Jack.

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.
