Nick Buckley was an unusual name for a girl, but then she led an unusal life. Firstly her brakes fail on a treacherous Cornish road, then a falling bolder misses her by inches, later on an oil painting falls and almost crushes her head. Upon discovering a bullet hole in her sun hat, Hercule Poirot decides she needs protection.

Hercule Poirot's relaxing holiday on the Cornish coast takes an unexpected turn when he meets young and pretty Nick Buckley. For it seems to Poirot that too many accidents have been happening to Nick and he, with the help of Captain Hastings, is determined to prevent another accident becoming a tragedy. But even hiding Nick away in a nursing home does not prevent another attempt on Nick's life and Poirot has to resort to subterfuge and cunning to solve this tricky case.
