Publisher's Summary

A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as the great Belgian detective.

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 on the first morning of their stay, Poirot literally falls at the feet of a pretty, dark-haired girl and, much to Hastings’ delight, insists that she join them for a cocktail.

The girl is Nick Buckley, last in a long line of Buckleys to live at End House, an isolated old place perched on the end of a rocky outcrop. As she reassures the two friends that living there is more fun than it might seem, Poirot’s ears prick up - she is having fun, Nick says, despite the fact that she has had three near-fatal accidents in the past few days.

To Poirot, that adds up to more than coincidence. And when Nick jerks away from a bee flying past that turns out to be a bullet, the Belgian knows there is work ahead for the little grey cells. The perpetrator of these ‘accidents’ may well be endlessly inventive and diabolically clever, but is he a match for the meticulous M. Poirot?

Another fun Poirot mystery

The production was well done with a number of interesting characters. Poirot comes out of retirement once again to help a damsel in distress. Enjoyed the development of the storyline and the surprise ending.
