From the Back Cover
When Lord Edgware is found murdered the police are baffled. His estranged actress wife was seen visiting him just before his death and Hercule Poirot himself heard her brag of her plan to “get rid” of him.
But how could she have stabbed Lord Edgware in his library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? It’s a case that almost proves to be too much for the great Poirot.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

How do you commit a crime with a perfect alibi? You can't... or can you? Lady Edgeware seems to be the prime suspect for killing her husband, but how did she do it? She has no motive and 12 witnesses placing her at a party at the time of the murder. Did she even do it?
Other suspects include a nephew who inherits the family fortune and title; the dead man's daughter, who feared and disliked her father; the family retainer; and an American actress who is acclaimed at impersonating other celebrities and nationalities. But when she dies by her own hand (or did she?), it appears that the American killed Lord Edgware for money but Poirot is not so sure. The missing letter may have been kept hidden to pin the murder on Jane Wilkinson and everyone seems to have a motive for killing the title character. A final twist at the end gives away the murderer and explains why a third person has to die before Poirot is able to solve the crime. An enjoyable read for any fan of Christie and Poirot.
