A Hercule Poirot Mystery. First published 1937 by Dodd, Mead & Company. Third Dell Edition. First printing—September 1982. New York, New York: Dell Publishing. Paperback, 252 pages.

From back cover:
MURDER BY MAIL
Hercule Poirot opened the envelope and read death between the lines. Unfortunately, the terrifying message came too late. The lady who had written it was already in her grave, her bizarre will had been approved by law, and the case was officially closed...
...until the greatest detective of them all lifted the lid on a viper’s nest of greed, deception, and jealousy. Poirot vowed that this time he would not be too late to stop a brilliant and baffling killer who was about to strike again....


Blurb:
DEATH HELD THE STOPWATCH
Emily Arundell had been a lady whom everybody loved and no one ever would have wanted to kill—or so it seemed at first. When Hercule Poirot entered the case, he had a hard time finding a single suspect.
But as the master sleuth peeked beneath the masks of a beautiful society swinger . . . a handsome scientist . . . a faithful servant and a pair of specialists in the occult . . . Poirot found himself with only too many possible murderers and just one chilling certainty:
Unless Poirot quickened his pace, the price of wasted time would be death . . .
