Agatha Christie

The Adventure of the Clapham Cook

In Agatha Christie’s short story, “The Adventure of the Clapham Cook,” Poirot is asked by a Mrs Todd to investigate the sudden departure of her cook, Eliza. When elements of the case seem to correspond to miscellaneous articles read aloud from yesterday’s paper to him by Hastings, Poirot begins to unravel a devilishly complex plot. This short story originally appeared in the November 14, 1923 issue of The Sketch magazine.
