Whilst in the company of his journalist friend Mary Ellen, the Saint receives a number of death threats, most starkly a wreath which informs him that he will be killed in two days' time. A couple of small-time crooks seem to be implicated in carrying messages for the would-be killer but both are bumped off before they can be of help to the Saint. With a hearse parked outside his door and Mary Ellen in the clutches of the murderer, time is running out for the Saint. Written by
