Description
What connects a movie star, an archaeologist, a French maid, a prime minister, a wealthy dowager, and an Italian count? Crime, of course - and the master crime-solver, Hercule Poirot. Half of them have fallen victim to a terrible crime; the others have fallen under suspicion. This collection brings together 14 stories, 14 crimes, and twice as many suspects from Poirot's mysterious adventures around the globe. This time, he investigates the mysterious murders that followed the opening of Pharaoh Men-her-Ra's tomb.
