In this delightful tale, an Eastern Prince arrives in England with some family jewels, which he's having reset as a gift for his fiancée. However, the Prince also has a mistress; she asks to wear one particularly enchanting piece that features a huge ruby, and then promptly disappears with it.

Poirot discovers a connection with a house party at the home of Colonel and Mrs Lacey, and in order to pursue his investigation an invitation is procured for him to the Laceys', ostensibly to enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas. With deft skill and the workings of his 'little grey cells', Poirot brings this case to a satisfying end. Starring John Moffat as Hercule Poirot, with Donald Sinden and Sian Phillips as Colonel and Mrs Lacey.

    " Thought it was okay. I generally don't like Agatha Christie's short stories as much as the novel length ones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn | 2/16/2014

    " This is my first Poirot story I read it on my kindle so I had no idea how long it was going to be. And it wasn't. I believe it is a short story. The characters were interesting. The language divine and the plot moved so quickly I was surprised when it was over. The detective work was all done out of sight and explained at the end. I look forward to my next Poirot book and as I have a paper copy I know it will take me longer than an hour to read. No language, no violence and no sex. "
