English Summary:

The Adventure of Johnnie Waverly is a short story by Agatha Christie which was first published in The Sketch in October 1923 in the U.K. It the U.S., the story was first published in The Blue Book Magazine in June 1925. The story was gathered and included in the collection Three Blind Mice and Other Stories, by Dodd, Mead and Company in the U.S. in 1950. In the U.K., the story was not anthologized until it was included in Poirot's Early Cases in 1974.

The Adventure of Johnnie Waverly

Poirot is called in to investigate the kidnapping of three-year-old Johnnie Waverly, the son of Marcus Waverly, from his home, Waverly Court in Surrey. Prior to the kidnapping, the family received anonymous letters that threatened to take the boy unless twenty-five thousand pounds was paid. The police took little interest until the final letter which stated that the boy would be kidnapped at twelve o'clock the next day. On that day, Mrs. Waverly was mildly poisoned and a note was left on Mr. Waverly's pillow that stated, "At Twelve O'clock". Horrified that someone inside the house is involved, Mr. Waverly sacks all of the staff except Tredwell, his long-time butler, and Miss Collins, his wife's trusted secretary-companion. At the appointed time Waverly, his son and Inspector McNeil of Scotland Yard are in a locked room in the house with police posted in the extensive grounds. Precisely at noon the police find a tramp sneaking toward the house. He has cotton wool, chloroform and a post-kidnap note ready to plant. When Waverly and the Inspector dash outside to see what is happening, the boy is taken by car through a now unguarded gate. They hear the village clock chiming twelve and realise that the main clock in the house had been set forward ten minutes. The tramp claims Tredwell employed him but the butler has an alibi for the time that he was said to meet the tramp: he was in the house with Mr. Waverly.

Four and Twenty Blackbirds

Poirot is eating out with a friend, Henry, and the conversation turns to people's habits. Henry eats regularly in the restaurant that they are in and he points out a white-bearded man as evidence of his theories. This bearded man eats the same meal there on Wednesday and Saturday and always orders much the same items as part of his three-course meal. The waitress brings their meals and sees Henry staring at the bearded man. She tells him that except the previous week he also came in on Monday and ordered things he'd never ordered before. Poirot's curiosity is piqued. Three weeks later, Poirot and Henry meet on a tube train and during the conversation Henry mentions that the bearded man has not been seen for a week. Henry's theory is that he has died and his change of habits on the Monday in question was as a result of being told bad news by his doctor. Poirot is not certain and starts to investigate. He easily finds the man's name from a list of recent deaths, and with a suitable introduction, meets the dead man's doctor. The man lived alone and died after an accidental fall downstairs at his house and was found near the milk bottles. He died at approximately 10.00 p.m. on that day and had eaten a meal a couple of hours before, at the same restaurant Poirot saw him in. He had a letter in the pocket. In response to the question of relatives, Poirot is told that the man had a twin brother, Anthony, who died on the afternoon of the same day as his brother after a long illness and that their only surviving relative is a nephew, George Lorrimer. Poirot is interested in the dead man's teeth and it is confirmed that they were very white for their age.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Johnnie Waverly esete

A Waverly-házaspár aggasztó fenyegetőleveleket kapott. Valaki kisfiuk elrablásával zsarolja őket, s egyre nagyobb pénzösszeget követel. Poirot és Hastings kapitány a segítségükre siet. Miközben a gyermek védelmét biztosítják, betekintést nyernek az arisztokrata család életébe. A családi kúria rejtett építészeti megoldásaival is megismerkednek s ez döntőnek bizonyul az ügy felderítésében.

24 feketerigó

Poirot fogorvosával vacsorázik egy kellemes londoni étteremben. A pincérnő különös vendégre hívja fel a figyelmüket. Mr. Gascoigne, az idős festő étkezési szokásai drasztikusan megváltoztak az utóbbi héten. Nem sokkal később a festő meghal. Senki sem gyanakszik gyilkosságra, hiszen a művész már nagyon idős volt. Poirot azonban biztos benne, hogy bűncselekmény történt. A megoldás kulcsát pedig egy rigókról szóló gyerekvers szolgáltatja.
