Agatha Christie, Peril at End House
CONDITION: Very Good
DESCRIPTION: Poirot is staying at the Majestic Hotel at the Cornish resort of St. Loo. They meet the young Magdala 'Nick' Buckley, who lives in End House, a slightly ramshackle house on a point in the bay. A conversation with her makes Poirot believe that someone is out to kill her. This is confirmed when Poirot finds a bullet that Nick had thought to be a wasp shooting past her head. Poirot explains his concern to Nick, who does not believe him until the bullet is revealed to be from Nick’s gun, which has gone missing. Poirot suspects someone in Nick's inner circle and starts shortlisting various suspects.
