The crime expert is about to tell his visitor something unpleasant about Lesley when he is shot and wounded, accidentally it seems, by Lesley herself. Later that night, Sir Harvey tells Dick that he recognized Lesley as a murderer who killed three husbands but was never convicted . because she somehow got the men to inject themselves with poison.
