Hastings hits one in the rough - Poirot aces the case.
On holiday in Deauville, a French seaside resort, Poirot savors the cuisine while Hastings works on his golf game. The famous detective is soon recognized, however, and drawn into a case of abduction and murder. Challenged by an arrogant French detective, Poirot stakes his reputation, and his moustache, on his superior sleuthing skills. A quick trip back to London clarifies Poirot's memory of a similar crime that captured headlines in Britain ten years earlier.
As played by David Suchet, Agatha Christie's brilliant Belgian became television's favorite detective. A PBS Mystery! phenomenon and A&E hit, the series also stars Hugh Fraser as Captain Hastings.
