From the Publisher:

Number One was the greatest criminal brain of all time; Number Two was a multi-millionaire; Number Three was a beautiful Frenchwoman; and Number Four was "the destroyer," the ruthless murderer with a genius for disguise, whose business it was to remove those who interfered with his masters, plans. These four, working together, aimed at establishing world dominance.

Hercule Poirot was preparing for a voyage to South America when an uninvited guest, coated from head to foot in mud, stood at his doorway, collapsed, then recovered long enough to scribble the number four on a piece of paper. It's now up to Poirot and his faithful assistant Hastings to follow the clues and stop a deadly cabal from achieving its devastating end.

Author Bio
Agatha Christie
One of the best-selling authors of all time, Agatha Christie spearheaded the golden age of mysteries with the creation of such unforgettable characters as Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple. Known for her suspenseful yet cozy mysteries, Christie was a master at keeping the reader guessing until the very last pages, establishing many of her genre's most classic and popular devices. Born in Torquay to an American father with a modest inheritance, she spent most of her life in England with frequent trips to the Middle East, where some of her novels are set. In 1914 she married her first husband, air force pilot Colonel Archibald Christie. After the war, she gave birth to her only child, Rosalind. She published her first book, "The Mysterious Affair at Styles", in 1920. Creating one of the greatest controversies of her career, she mysteriously disappeared in 1926, and though people feared the worst, she turned up in a hotel room with what she claimed to be a case of amnesia brought on by stress, and refused to ever talk about the incident again. In 1930 she met and married an archaeologist, Sir Max Mallowan, and her first play, "Black Coffee", was produced. Christie went on to write "Mousetrap", which debuted in 1954 and was the longest-running play in the history of London's West End. That year, she also served as president of the Detection Club and was awarded the first of many Grand Master Awards from the Mystery Writers of America.

"Even though Fraser is accustomed to playing Hastings [on PBS's MYSTERY dramatizations of the Poirot novels], ther's not a drop of Hastings in his Poirot, nor in his masterful portrayals of Japp, Poirot's Scotland Yard sidekick, or the hilarious but tragic Cockney heroine, Flossie." - M. Tracy Brigden June/July 2005
