    Summary

    “Hide that,” he says, forcing the words out past every instinct. “As well as you can, all right? Before morning.”

    Steve stares at him blankly, like he needs a moment to work this out, then swallows once, sharply. "What's your name?" he asks at last—asks as he stands there with the pelt in his hands.

    And oh, he thinks suddenly, what is his name? He can’t speak it, not with this mouth, he can’t sing it into the air like he can in the ocean. He just shakes his head; like his nakedness, it’s something he can't explain. Steve nods, just nods, his eye swelling shut and blood drying on his shirt collar, and says "we’ll figure it out."

    Summary

    When a young Arthur Hastings visits an old school friend in Belgium in 1913, he expects nothing more than a pleasant holiday. The holiday turns into tragedy with the sudden death of his friend's father, Sir William Bentley, British Ambassador to Belgium.

    Fearing a severing of diplomatic ties between the two countries, the Belgian government begs the police to put their best man onto the case: Hercule Poirot. As the investigation progresses, Hastings finds himself drawn to the detective's brilliant mind and personality not only on a professional level but also on an increasingly personal one...
