Captain Hastings is a war hero and a veteran from World War I, sent back home to recover from his war injuries. One day he suddenly meets an old friend of his – John Cavendish, who invites him over to a mansion in Styles, where he lives. This house now belongs to his stepmother – Emily Inglethorp, inherited from John’s dead father. She married the younger former secretary of hers Alfred Inglethorp.. Now she rules the house with a firm cold hand, treating the other residents with much despotism and autocracy. She must have upset somebody with her behavior quite a bit, as the one grim evening she is found dying from a strychnine poisoning.With a long trail of evidence and plenty of suspects, Hastings believes he knows the right person for this convoluted case – the retired Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Detective Poirot knows the victim, as she had helped him to take refuge from the war and settle down in a village near by. That’s why he doesn’t need much convincing to take the case and start investigating the murder case of Emily Inglethorp.
