At a village fête, Poirot runs into an old friend, John Harrison and his fiancé Molly Deane, a fashion model. Harrison invites Poirot and Hastings to tea the following week where Poirot learns that Molly had once been engaged to a local artist, Claude Langton. Poirot is puzzled by a number of apparently unrelated incidents but concludes that someone is being untruthful and that a murder is being planned. Courtesy of Hastings' new hobby, photography, Poirot knows exactly what is going to occur. Insp. Japp is hospitalized with a case of appendicitis.Written by
Chief Inspector Japp:
Sorry about this, Poirot. I thought as she was here visiting with her sister it would be a simple matter for her to meet us at the station. Trouble with Mrs Japp is when she gets nattering over a cup of tea she loses all track of time. Perhaps you two better run along and we'll see you there.

Poirot, wasps and a love triangle
Poirot runs into an old friend, author John Harrison. He is engaged to model Molly Deane but Poirot senses that something is amiss in their relationship. Deane was previously in a relationship with Harrison's best friend, artist Claude Langton. Poirot is fearful that a murder is being planned.
Reasonably interesting. There's no murder to be investigated here, but rather a murder to be prevented. Quite novel in that respect, though it does make the plot a bit conjectural, rather than based on clues and evidence.
Worth noting that the cast includes Peter Capaldi, of The Thick of It fame, as Claude Langton.
