Renauld is kidnapped and his body is later found buried in a new golf bunker. French detective Giraud unwisely challenges Poirot to catch the killer before he can. Meanwhile, Hastings is diverted by love - he has fallen heavily for an actress called Dulcie Duveen. Dulcie has a twin sister called Bella.

  • A rarity in Poirot - a murder mystery combined with a love story for a main character.

    9.0
    On holiday in France, Poirot is approached by a businessman, who is convinced his life may be in danger. Poirot arranges to see him the next day, but by then it's too late. He appears to have been kidnapped during the night. Then Hastings discovers his body on the nearby golf course, stabbed in the back.



    But it's not the only thing Hastings has discovered - he's seen sultry singer Bella Duveen and he's seriously smitten.



    It's a sweet episode with a lot going for it. In terms of the story, you might not want to leave the room too often, because it's complicated - some might say too contrived! Lots of coincidences, mistaken identity and subplots - even a rival detective for Poirot to deal with.



    But it's Arthur Hastings finally falling in love that makes this episode for me. Hugh Fraser is great in the role - he's so quintessentially British stiff upper lip, that seeing him trying a bit of romance for once is great. The end scene is terrific.moreless
