As the guests arrive, she summons her lawyer to make an urgent change to her will - one she intends to announce at dinner that night. She has decided to cut off her two children without a penny. Among her guests are two men she has never met - the famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, and Inspector Edward Catchpool of Scotland Yard. Neither knows why he has been invited, until Poirot starts to wonder if Lady Playford expects a murderer to strike. When the crime is committed in spite of Poirot's best efforts to prevent it, and the victim is not who he expected it to be, will he be able to find the culprit and solve the mystery?

Returning home after lunch, Hercule Poirot finds an angry woman waiting outside his front door. She demands to know why Poirot has sent her a letter accusing her of the murder of Barnabas Pandy, a man she has neither heard of nor ever met.

Shaken, he goes inside, only to find that he has a visitor waiting for him - a man who claims to have received a letter from Poirot accusing him of the murder of the same Barnabas Pandy. How many more letters have been sent? Who sent them, and why? More importantly, who is Barnabas Pandy, is he dead, and if so, was he murdered? And can Poirot find the answers without putting more lives in danger?
