Sixteen years after Caroline Crale was convicted for the murder of her husband Amyas, her daughter Carla Lemarchant asks Hercule Poirot to reinvestigate the case, after she was given a letter from her late mother claiming she was innocent, which Carla believes to be true. Poirot agrees to her request and establishes that on the day of the murder at the Crales’ home there were five other people present, whom Poirot dubs “the five little pigs” – stockbroker Philip Blake, amateur chemist Meredith Blake (Philip’s brother), Caroline’s young half-sister Angela Warren, Angela’s governess Cecilia Williams and Amyas’s painting model Elsa Greer. The police found that Amyas was poisoned by coniine, found in a glass he had drunk from. Poirot interviews the five other suspects and notes that none has an obvious motive. But who is the real killer…?
