    In the post-war climate of the late 1940s, an ailing Poirot reunites with his old friend Captain Hastings at Styles Court, the place where they had solved their first murder together almost thirty years previously. Styles is now a modest guest house run by an elderly couple, and Poirot knows that one of the guests staying there is a heartless serial killer. The suspects range from a chemist and his invalid wife, a dashing but untrustworthy major, a charming aristocrat, a melancholic middle-aged woman, an unobtrusive birdwatcher, and Hastings' own feisty daughter. With Hastings' assistance, an incapacitated Poirot tries to prevent another murder from occurring, knowing that his own end is nearing.
