Agatha Christie's The Case of the Missing Cook

MYSTERY. Eager to tend to his personal affairs like trimming his mustache and removing a grease spot from his suit, famed detective Hercule Poirot vows to take time off from solving crimes. Instead, Poirot receives an unexpected visit from Mrs. Todd, who insists that he investigate the disappearance of her cook. When Poirot declines the case, declaring it not of “national importance,” Mrs. Todd rebukes him. “A good cook’s a good cook. And when you lose her, it’s as much to you as pearls are to some fine lady.” Poirot concedes defeat and agrees to take the case. However, days later, Poirot receives a letter from Mrs. Todd dismissing him from the case. Infuriated, Poirot vows to find the missing cook at any cost. And in the end, he declares this mystery to be one of his most interesting cases. Easy to stage.
