In the novel Mrs McGinty's Dead, Mr Benson was a chemist and neighbour of the Burches. Benson did not appear in the story in person. Bessie Burch told Poirot that her aunt Abigail McGinty hardly wrote to her. Instead, when she needed to pass her niece a message, her usual method was to make a phone call to Benson and ask him to relay it.
