A woman is killed by a poisoned dart in the enclosed confines of a commercial passeneger plane...
From seat No.9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite; ahead, in seat No.13, sat a Countess with a poorly-concealed cocaine habit; across the gangway in seat No.8, a detective writer was being troubled by an aggressive wasp.
What Poirot did not yet realize was that behind him, in seat No.2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman.

“It will be a very acute reader who does not receive a complete surprise at the end.”
Times Literary Supplement
But Hercule Poirot is also on the flight and his discovery of a poisoned dark leads him to believe that the wasp did not cause her death.
Poirot has a large cast of characters to choose from in this ‘locked-room’ mystery and working with Scotland Yard and the Sūreté he sets out to discover the truth in his own very methodical way.
