The banker, Mr. Davenheim, left his house one Saturday afternoon to post some letters and was never seen again. Police discover that a concealed safe in his study had been broken into and cash, bonds, and jewelry stolen. Later, Mr. Davenheim’s clothing is found in a lake and his ring is discovered in a ditch. To solve the case, Poirot asks himself, “If I were this man, where would I hide?” Easy to stage with just one simple set.
