Summary

Poirot enters the cabin where a steward is watching over Jacqueline. Jacqueline confesses the whole story to Poirot. She says that it was Simon's idea to marry and kill Linnet for her money. Jackie says she got involved because she knew that Simon was so simple that he would never be able to make it work without her. As Poirot leaves, he hears Jackie's laughter ringing in his ears.

Analysis

It's possible that Jacqueline is at least slightly crazy. Poirot, however, does belive that Jackie is not the one that thought of killing Linnet first. She is simply the brains behind the plot, once it was decided that's how they would be together and have money.

Vocabulary
