Detailed Plot Synopsis of Murder for Christmas

It is Christmas Eve, and elderly Simeon Lee has invited his family home for a good old-fashioned holiday celebration. At least, that's what he told them. In fact, the old man has a mean streak, and insults each and every one of his children in turn. Later that night, he is found violently murdered in his locked office. The police are immediately called, but of course nobody has a clue until Hercule Poirot arrives.
