The Story

The formula for an atom bomb has been stolen from the very rich and very famous physicist Sir Claud Amory, a situation that can only be unraveled by the beloved Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Upon his arrival, Poirot finds a dead body, traces of poison in the coffee, and an Agatha Christie array of quirky suspects. An intriguing whodunnit by the masterful Dame of mystery.
