Summary
Three act tragedy: While visiting the Cornish coast, Poirot attends a dinner where one of the guests suddenly dies. An inquest finds no foul play. But Poirot's host, renowned stage actor Sir Charles Cartwright, thinks otherwise, and another death at a later party with the same guests seems to confirm his suspicions. Poirot applies "la technique classique" as he eliminate the suspects one by one. The clocks: A pretty secretary arrives at a residence for a temporary typing job, only to find a man's corpse on the floor. No one can identify the body, find a murder weapon, or explain the presence of four strange clocks-- none of which belongs in the home, and all of which stopped at 4:13. Hallowe'en party: A children's party turns into the murder of 13-year-old Joyce Reynolds, who had boasted of witnessing a murder a few years before. Ariadne Oliver, a crime novelist, summons Poirot to help investigate
