A full-length Hercule Poirot novel, adapted from Agatha Christie’s stage play by Charles Osborne
Sir Claud Amory’s revolutionary new formula for a powerful explosive is stolen.

When the lights come on, he is dead, and Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings have to unravel a tangle of family feuds, old flames and suspicious foreigners to find the killer and prevent a global catastrophe.

Combining her typically beguiling plot and sparkling dialogue with his own faithful narrative, Charles Osborne’s novelisation is ‘A worthy addition to the Christie canon’ (The Spectator)
