Captain Hastings, Poirot’s friend, notices a woman on the street when looking through the window of Poirot’s room. Poirot identifies her to be Miss Mary Marvell, a famous American film star. He suspects she is on the way to see him. Soon his predictions are confirmed, and the door bell rings. Mary Marvell brings threatening letters she received in relation to the diamond in her possession called the “Western Star.” This the first of the 11 adventures of Hercule Poirot, a Belgian detective who investigates crimes and unravels mysteries that pose danger to his clients. Along with him the Scotland Yard is also chasing these villains always coming second. Each crime involves high society circles, including political figures. Although less able, Captain Hastings provides assistance that can be vital even when his conclusions seem to go astray. His input in the form of observation or remark can spark a new perspective, and Poirot appreciates it. Captain Hastings follows all the cases not realizing that Poirot knows more than he reveals, only to find out that all his actions were methodically planned and executed. At the end of each adventure, Poirot explains how he arrived at his conclusions.
