I dissect rucksacks, my friend. It is very interesting.'

Does it matter? She might have done it, yes! I don't care is she did. I don't want her hanged, I tell you! Beautiful young Elinor Carlisle stood serenely in the dock, accused of the murder of Mary Gerrard, her rival in love. The evidence was damning: only Elinor had the motive, the opportunity and the means to administer the fatal poison. Yet, inside the hostile courtroom, only one man still presumed Elinor was innocent until proven guilty. Hercule Poirot was all that stood between Elinor and the gallows...
Death in the Clouds
You seem very much interested in the wasp, Monsieur Poirot.'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 bring 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...
The cuckoo clock struck three all right, but all the others were about an hour fast. How very off! When the Cavendish Bureau was telephoned and asked to send one of their secretaries to a house in Wilbraham Crescent, the caller made no mention of the dead body she would find there. Who made the call to the agency? Who was the murdered man? And why were there clocks in the room that didn't belong there? The clocks had stopped, but the time is ticking away for Hercule Poirot...

But she will never wake again - for a heavy blow has killed her, disfiguring her features almost beyond recognition. What is more, her precious rubies are missing.
