Poirot put the pages down and sighed. ‘It is clear to me which person committed the crime. And yet, I cannot see why, or how.’

Japp stared at him. ‘Are you saying that by reading this stuff you’ve got an idea who did it?’

‘I think so.’

Japp grabbed the papers and read them through, passing each page to Fournier as he finished it. Then he stared at Poirot. ‘Are you joking?’

‘No, no.’

Fournier put down the pages. ‘I cannot see that this list helps us.’

‘Not by itself. But add it to certain facts of the case, no? Well, it may be that I am completely wrong.’

‘Well, let’s hear your theory, then,’ said Japp.

‘But, it is only a theory. I hoped to find a certain object on that list, and I have found it. But it belongs to the wrong person. Much is not clear to me, but there are some facts which form an obvious pattern. Do you not agree? Well, let us each work to his own idea. I only have a certain suspicion…’

Japp rose to his feet. ‘I’ll work in London, and you will return to Paris, Fournier, with Monsieur Poirot.’

Fournier shook Poirot’s hand. ‘We will meet at Croydon Airport tomorrow morning, then.’

As the detectives left, Poirot went to a small table and picked up a copy of the Sketch. He turned the pages until he found what he was looking for.

‘Two Sun Worshippers.’ said the headline. Lady Horbury and Mr Raymond Barraclough at he Pinet.’ He looked at the two laughing people in bathing-costumes, their arms around each other. ‘I wonder…’ said Hercule Poirot.
