 Hercule Poirot returns in a brilliant murder mystery this time not written by Agatha Christie but by Sophie Hannah, commissioned by Agatha Christie Limited.

Lady Athelinda Playford has planned a house party at her mansion in Clonakilty, County Cork, but it is no ordinary gathering. As guests arrive, Lady Playford summons her lawyer to make an urgent change to her will - one she intends to announce at dinner that night. She has decided to cut off her two children without a penny and leave her fortune to someone who has only weeks to live....

Among Lady Playford's guests are two men she has never met - the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and Inspector Edward Catchpool of Scotland Yard. Neither knows why he has been invited...until Poirot starts to wonder if Lady Playford expects a murderer to strike. But why does she seem so determined to provoke in the presence of a possible killer?

Poirot and Catchpool must disentangle the truth from a rat's nest of bitter family resentments, in a family where almost everyone seems to despise each other.

So let us meet on the 15th of November and try to understand who did what, who likes whom and what what has actually happened that night. Read up to the end of chapter 34 page 321 ”We move on...”. And then together we will draw our conclusions.
