Abstract:

"There had been three nearly fatal mishaps in three days. A heavy portrait fell from the wall of Miss Nick Buckely's bedroom, almost crushing her skull. A boulder crashed into the sea where she was swimming, missing her by inches. And then the brakes of her car failed. As Hercule Poirot, the famous detective, listened to her story he felt a chill of fear. Were these accidents or attempted murder? Then a hidden assassin fired at her. And Hercule Poirot knew that attempt No. 5 was sure to come. When it did, would he be ready so protect this lovely young woman? Poirot was faced with the most baffling puzzle of his career. Instead of solving a murder, the great detective had to unmask a killer before the murder could be committed."--BOOK COVER.
