On holiday on the Cornish Riviera, Hercule Poirot is alarmed to hear pretty Nick Buckley describe her recent "accidental brushes with death". First, on a treacherous Cornish hillside, the brakes on her car failed. Then, on a coastal path, a falling boulder missed her by inches. Later, an oil painting fell and almost crushed her in bed. So when Poirot finds a bullet hole in Nick's sun hat, he decides that this girl needs his help. Can he find the would-be killer before he hits his target?

Professional reviews

"This is one Poirot story in which the famous sleuth is nearly baffled. While vacationing on the Cornish coast, Hercule and his friend Hastings become convinced that the beautiful and carefree Nick Buckley, who lives in the mysterious "End House" nearby, is the target of a determined murderer. Each character in carefully and skillfully brought to life with the usual aplomb by the wonderful Hugh Fraser. No matter what the plot's twists and turns, Fraser makes it all believable and easy to follow. There is never a question of who is who as Fraser does a beautiful job of making each character an individual. It's all good old-fashioned mystery fun. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
