Death At The Dentist’s

The dentist lay on the floor of his office, a gun beside him. Suicide, obviously. Nobody knew why, until it was all comfortably and satisfactorily explained when a Greek, a patient of the dentist’s, died from an overdose of dental drugs. No solution as simple as that, however, would satisfy Hercule Poirot. He had just plunged into the problem when an inconspicuous little woman was murdered. And then the greatest financier in the country had a narrow escape from death.

M. Poirot unravels a case that comes to an astounding conclusion – with Agatha Christie at her best.
