Publisher's Summary

As instructed, stenographer Sheila Webb let herself into the house at 19 Wilbraham Crescent. It was then that she made a grisly discovery: the body of a dead man sprawled across the living-room floor.What intrigued Poirot about the case was the time factor. Although in a state of shock, Sheila clearly remembered having heard a cuckoo clock strike 3.00. Yet, the four other clocks in the living room all showed the time as 4.13. Even more strange: only one of these clocks belonged to the owner of the house.

The aging Hercule Poirot makes guest appearances as an armchair consultant, but since the other two detectives are quite charmless, this isn't Agatha Christie's most interesting work. Rather disappointed.
