Lady Athelinda Playford has planned a house party at her mansion in Clonakilty. She summons her lawyer and makes a change to her will – one she announces 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.
Neither Poirot nor Cathchpool know why they have been invited. Is Lady Playford expecting a murderer to strike after this revelation? Who would it be if indeed there is a murder (I’m not telling one way or the other!).
The legendary ‘little grey cells’ have a lot to think about with Edward doing a lot of the running about, but not all. Wonderful description of Poirot moving fast!
A good old fashioned country house mystery, which has you thinking to the end.
