Episode Summary

EDIT
Poirot visits Cornwall to attend a dinner party at the house of his friend Sir Charles Cartwright. When an amiable local clergyman chokes to death on his cocktail, Poirot does not at first see the death as a murder. There seems to be no motive, and (as Poirot predicts) no trace of poison is found in the dead man's glass. Apart from Sir Charles's doctor friend, Sir Bartholomew Strange, and the enigmatic Miss Egg Lytton Gore, any one of the guests could have taken the glass and drunk from it. Then, some weeks later, Sir Bartholomew Strange also chokes to death at a dinner party he is giving, with many of the same people present. Poirot and Cartwright travel from Monte Carlo to Strange's house in Yorkshire, where Cartwright is determined to unravel the reasons behind his friend's death and also to impress Egg. Again, no poison is found in the dead man's glass, but nevertheless a post-mortem finds that Strange was poisoned. This not only seems to mean he was murdered, but also reopens the question of the first death.moreless
