Five Little Pigs   

 Sixteen years after Caroline Crale is convicted for the murder of her husband Amyas, her daughter Carla Lemarchant approaches Hercule Poirot. Carla claims her mother was innocent; her mother told her so in the letter Carla received at age 21 from her mother. She fears that her fiancé will leave her if the truth behind the murder is not found. Poirot agrees to her request. He learns that on the day of the murder, there were five other people at the Crales’ home, whom he dubs “the five little pigs” — Phillip Blake, a stockbroker; Meredith Blake, Phillip’s brother, and an amateur chemist; Angela Warren, Caroline’s much younger half-sister; Cecilia Williams, Angela’s governess, and Elsa Greer (now Lady Dittisham), a young woman who is the subject of Amyas’s latest painting. The police investigation discovered that Amyas was poisoned by coniine, found in a glass from which he had drunk cold beer. The poison had been stolen from Meredith’s lab by Caroline, who confessed to stealing it because she planned to use it to commit suicide.
