"She's death to men." That's what they told the American trouble-buster, Joe P. Heggy, during his visit to the island nation of Cyprus. When he hears about Charmain's past--about all the men who'd died for her--he tries to stay clear, but she won't let him. What's a man to do when the most beautiful dame on Cyprus keeps throwing herself at you? But Charmain's been involved in too many shady liaisons: her past is beginning to catch up with her, and Heggy's drawn into the mess, like or not. When a Cypriot mob begins a manhunt at the instigation of a craven power-seeker, their lives are on the line. They manage to survive a bus accident that nearly sends them over a cliff, and then must flee into the mountains with fear at their side--and in that tense battle Heggy learns just why the delectable Charmain's become known as...Poison Ivy! Another great thriller from the 1950s!
