The last Poirot by Agatha Christie had this plot.
Poirot dies from complications of a heart condition at the end of Curtain:
Poirot's Last Case, where he moves his amyl nitrite pills out of his reach.
It is revealed at the end of Curtain that he fakes his need for a wheelchair
(he wants to fool people into believing that he is suffering from arthritis).
