A man in his late fifties: eminently respectable, professional. Smartly dressed, grey-haired, bespectacled. Tall and thin. So ordinary looking that he almost looks sinister – as if the ordinariness and respectability might be a disguise of some kind. He’s the solicitor of the murder victim, and he’s become a longstanding family friend over the years. He handles the deceased’s considerable estate. He has a strong sense of duty but very little imagination. When he is able to help Poirot, it’s by passing on what he knows about the characters of the family members. He is slightly naive, and cannot bring himself to believe that anyone associated with himself might be murdered.
