The story concerns Elinor Carlisle, accused of murdering another young woman while in a jealous rage. The evidence against Elinor is overwhelming, and she seems destined for prison until a friend and admirer engages Poirot. What follows is the usual Christie puzzle, which listeners are invited to help solve. This book is from a smoke-free home.

"Elinor Katherine Carlisle You stand charged with murder "
The demure and attractive young woman stood in the prisoner's box, listening to the
charges against her. What had begun as a
visit to her aged aunt now had turned into a nightmare----a nightmare from which she might never waken.

Are you guilty or not guilty?" the voice grimly demanded; and the girl turned even paler. A sea of hostile faces seemed to swim before her eyes. How can she claim innocence....when even she could not be sure..........?

What follows is the usual Christie puzzle, which listeners are invited to help solve. Suchet reads superbly and provides each character, especially Poirot, with a distinct personality.
