THE AFFAIR AT THE VICTORY BALL Cocaine is but one villain in "The Affair at
the Victory Ball," narrated by Poirot's good friend Captain Hastings. Lord
Cronshaw ("twenty- five, rich, unmarried, and very fond of the theatrical world") is
stabbed at a chic costume ball at the Colossus Hall. His rumored fiancee, the
actress Coco Courtenay, dies of an overdose of cocaine the same night. The
case is rather too glamorous for Inspector Japp of Scotland Yard, and he asks for
Poirot's help.
