The dentist was found with a blackened hole below his right temple. A pistol lay on the floor near his out flung right hand. Later, one of his patients was found dead from a lethal dose of local anaesthetic. A clear case of murder and suicide. But why would a dentist commit a crime in the middle of a busy day of appointments?
A shoe buckle holds the key to the mystery. Now - in the words of the rhyme - can Poirot pick up the sticks and lay them straight?

I have enjoyed listening to Hugh Fraser's performances of Christie's works. I have listened to several, and he does such a great job as narrator.
No, I was okay with drawing it over several sittings. It got a little slow in places, and the ending seemed a little improbable.
