Und mir stand es natürlich nicht zu, daraufhin irgend etwas zu sagen. Sir Gervase führte im Grunde ein Selbstgespräch. « »Mademoiselle«, sagte, Poirot, »Sie, eine Fremde, sind seit zwei Monaten im Hause. « Miss Lingard nahm ihren Kneifer ab und kniff die Augen nachdenklich zu. »Ach Gott – zuerst dachte ich, ich wäre mitten in ein Irrenhaus geraten! Lady Chevenix-Gore sah ständig Dinge, die gar nicht existierten, und Sir Gervase führte sich wie ein – wie ein Tyrann auf und dramatisierte alles auf höchst ungewöhnliche Weise – ich war wirklich der Meinung, daß ich in meinem ganzen Leben noch keinem merkwürdigeren Menschen begegnet war.
