DL077: Hercule Poirot: The Case of the Careless Victim — Act 1: Scene 4
Inspector Stevens arrives at the hotel already predicting who the victim and the murderer are. However, he is in for a bit of a surprise. After identifying the body, Stevens and Poirot have the dual task of arresting the murderer all the while giving police protection to an important man who has had death threats. The man they are after likes to tease the police by giving them clues. He’s out to prove he’s smart enough to get away with murder…even with the police ‘hot on his trail.’
Come Up with a Theory
Well, he has outwitted the police before, but what he doesn’t realise is that this time, he has Poirot after him too… and you! Maybe you can outwit this egomaniac — this crazy murderer who is so proud of himself. Do your best to piece the clues together into a theory that makes sense, and try to pick up on more clues — especially ones that aren’t even mentioned by Stevens or Poirot.
