But as her stay lengthens, a mystery emerges: is this all there is, or did Violet's uncle leave behind something else?

A case on a train begins with a corpse in a carriage. Poirot's mysteries are never easily solved, and this one is no exception: the crime scene is always moving! The stakes are raised yet again when the deceased is identified as the daughter of an Australian mining magnate. The woman's own will complicates things further, as everything she owned is left to her estranged husband, a gambling addict.

Poirot is on the case once again! After a brief interlude at a London nightclub, Hercule Poirot joins his friend Roger Havering to find his uncle's murderer. Havering, himself a blueblood and well-to-do, leads the detective to his hunting lodge in Derbyshire. There, Poirot must navigate unfamiliar surroundings to solve the case, though the danger is not entirely gone just yet.

Near the end of the First World War, Hercule Poirot is alerted to an assassination attempt on the English Prime Minister. Very shortly thereafter, Poirot receives news of the Prime Minister's kidnapping, and is subsequently enlisted to help find the missing head of state.
Across the English countryside and into northern France, Poirot must work quickly to locate his quarry. It's not just his life that depends on it, but the fate of the world, too.
