Henry Tibbett and his wife, Emmy, look forward to a peaceful vacation while visiting Emily's sister in the country village of Gorsemere. However, an emergency phone call involves Henry in a search for a missing dog and quite undepectedly leads him into a baffling web of crime. A series of seemingly unrelated events-a local man's accidental act of murder, a shootout in a London stadium, and some scandalous behavior among England's nobility-draws Henry into the sinister behind-the-scenes world of dog racing, where the deadly seriousness of the big-money stakes provokes a lethal confrontation.

Henry Tibbett, Chief Superintendant of Scotland Yard, has for years delighted those who love a classic Bristish detective story. A modest, self-effacing man, Tibbett possesses an almost uncanny 'nose' for crime, and those who know him well realize that his gentlemanly demeanor masks a shrewd mind and a fearless spirit. When he teams up with his wife, Emmy, a cheerful but formidable woman, there isn't a criminal anywhere who can rest secure.
