* SpottingTheThread: How Poirot finds the freelance political agitator Colonel Race is hunting. [[spoiler:The problem with "Signor Richetti's" disguise is that it's ''too'' consistent; in trying to pass as an archeologist, he yammers about his supposed field of interest at the drop of a hat and comes off as having a cartoonishly exaggerated obsession with it -- he even claims to have been in his bed reading a treatise on new discoveries in Asia Minor at the time of Linnet's murder. As Poirot says, he was too much an archeologist and not enough a human being.]]
