    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).
