Poirot tackles an intriguing and dangerous murder case involving international espionage, a Middle-Eastern revolution and a missing princess.

The surviving heir to a Middle-Eastern throne is hidden away from revolutionaries in a small English girl’s school, but when — one by one — teachers are found murdered, it seems the school may not be such a haven for the princess after all. At Meadowbank School for Girls hidden rubies, kidnapping, and murder disrupt the term. With the killer on the loose and pupils fleeing with frantic parents, only Poirot can save the school from ruin.
