Summary
"What I intend to say to you will come as a shock..." With these words, Lady Athelinda Playford -- one of the world's most beloved children's authors -- springs a surprise on the lawyer entrusted with her will. As guests arrive for a party at her Irish mansion, Lady Playford has decided to cut off her two children without a penny . . . and leave her vast fortune to someone else: an invalid who has only weeks to live. Among Lady Playford's visitors are two strangers: the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and Inspector Edward Catchpool of Scotland Yard. Neither knows why he has been invited until Poirot begins to wonder if Lady Playford expects a murder. But why does she seem so determined to provoke a killer? And why when the crime is committed, despite Poirot's best efforts to stop it does the identity of the victim make no sense at all?
