Then, on a coastal path, a falling boulder misses her by inches. Safe in bed, she is almost crushed by a painting.

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."@en
