AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Hercule Poirot and his good friend Captain Hastings are enjoying a well-deserved break on the Cornish Riviera, in the idyllic village of St Loo. Wandering along the terrace of the Hotel Majestic, Poirot literally falls at the feet of a pretty, dark-haired girl, and much to Hasting's delight insists that she join them for a cocktail. The girl is Nicky Buckley, last of a long line of Buckleys to live at End House, an isolated old place perched on a rocky outcrop. Nick says she is having fun staying there, despite the fact that she has had three near-fatal accidents in the past few days. Poirots ears prick up, to him that is more than concidence. And when Nick jerks away from a bee flying past that turns out to be a bullet, Poirot knows there is work ahead. The perpetrator of these 'accidents' may well be endlessly inventive and clever, but is he a match for M. Poirot?' (Source: LibrariesAustralia)
