UK Released DVD/Blu-Ray item. It MAY NOT play on regular US DVD/Blu-Ray player. You may need a multi-region US DVD/Blu-Ray player to play this item. Following the death of their father, the Boynton children are left firmly under the control of their despised stepmother, Emily Boynton, when his estate is bequeathed solely to her. To clear the air of death, Mrs Boynton takes the entire family on a tour of Europe and the Holy Land, during which her control and meddling in her stepchildren’s and her own daughter’s lives is apparent to all. She effortlessly manages to upset many of the guests on the tour, including a friend of Hercule Poirot. On a visit to a dig Mrs Boynton’s body is discovered. Poirot, suspecting foul play, recalls conversations he overheard of the family plotting to murder the old lady and is called upon by the authorities to investigate. With 48 hours to expose the murderer, will Poirot’s little grey cells manage to extract the truth from the many suspects and prevent the culprit getting away with murder?

“I never forget a name or a face.” Mr. Boynton (whom we never see) passes away. Mrs. Emily Boynton (Piper Laurie) who used to be a matron in a prison is hard as tacks. She blackmails the family lawyer (David Soul) into burning a recent will, and preserving an earlier one that gave everything to Emily. Emily gets even nastier with her children and step children. It does not stop there she snubs just about everyone. So guess who gets killed.
