9780007234417: Three Act Tragedy

Reverend Stephen Babbington attends a party, has a cocktail, and dies. With no trace of poison and no motive for murder, the death is ascribed to natural causes. At another party, with the same guests, another person dies in exactly the same manner. Hercule Poirot, present at the first gathering, takes on the baffling case. He stages his own party, gathering all the suspects together. Is he setting himself up to find the truth, or setting the stage for another murder?

From the Back Cover:

Sir Charles Cartwright should have known better than to allow thirteen guests to sit down for dinner. For at the end of the evening one of them is dead—choked by a cocktail that contained no trace of poison.

Predictable, says Hercule Poirot, the great detective. But entirely unpredictable is that he can find absolutely no motive for murder....
