To tease the great detective, her guests stage a mock murder beside the swimming pool.
Unfortunately, the victim plays the scene for real. As his blood drips into the water, John Christow gasps one final word: `Henrietta'.
In the confusion, a gun sinks to the bottom of the pool.Poirot's enquiries reveal a complex web of romantic attachments.
It seems everyone in the drama is a suspect - and each a victim of love.
