Yellow Iris (Episode #503)

KQED Plus: Mon, Dec 9, 2013 -- 8:00 PM

Hastings tells Poirot about a new restaurant opening in London which has the same name as one Poirot visited two years ago in Buenos Aires. A yellow iris arrives with the post, which further reminds Poirot of his trip.

Could the mysterious arrival of the flower be a request for Poirot to pick up the case again?
