CHRONOLOGY: 1930

FEBRUARY: The Mystery of Hunter’s Lodge

No references. The action takes place on the moors (not anywhere near Poirot’s office). Snow is melting on the ground, so probably late winter / early spring.

AUGUST: The Plymouth Express

No references. Very green landscape, probably spring or early autumn. An economically successful case for Poirot. He is established in Whitehaven Mansions.


OCTOBER: The Disappearance of Mr. Davenheim

No references. The month is given by Poirot (“It is now the middle of October” - about the Davenheims sleeping in separate bedrooms). The racing course used is called Brooklands (1907-1939).

NOVEMBER: The King of Clubs 

No references. It's raining and there's leaves on the ground, so definitely autumn. Two magnificent 1930s houses are used (“High & Over” in Buckinghamshire, built 1929, is one of them).
