The detective's friend Sir Charles Cartwright (guest star Martin Shaw) hosts a cocktail party at his home in Cornwall, where an amiable local priest chokes to death on his drink. There seems to be no motive for murder, and no trace of poison found in the victim's glass, but weeks later, when Sir Charles's doctor friend Sir Bartholomew Strange dies in similar circumstances, he and Poirot team up to investigate.
