Framed in the doorway of Hercule Poirot's bedroom stands an uninvited guest, coated from head to foot in dust. The man stares for a moment, then he sways and falls.
Who is he? Is he suffering from shock or just exhaustion? Above all, what is the significance of the figure 4, scribbled over and over again on a sheet of paper? Poirot finds himself plunged into a worldof international intrigue, risking his life and thatof his twin brother to uncover the truth.
“It is always a delight to meet Hercule Poirot again. He is one of the few detectives with real charm.”
-Dorothy L. Sayers
“The acknowledged queen of detective fiction.”
-The Observer (UK)
