"Wtih uncanny timing, Sir John Appleby arrives at Belrive Priory to keep a dinner enagement at almost hte exact moment his host's nephew is shot.

Never was there a more on-the-sp[t investigation, as Appleby listens, interrogates, and deliverately stirs up the rest of the party. It is a family group, and like most, seems to generate more hostility than loving kindness. But when arrest threatens one of them, the others fall over each other to confess, and Appleby has the devil's own nailing the real culprit!"

Mr. Innes commands such a battery of wit, subtlety, learning and psychological penetration that he blows almost all opposition clean out of the water." -- Nicholas Blake
