He was in mourning: a friend had died. A natural death, the doctor had said, though sudden.
But in the whole of that green and smiling countryside, there seems to be danger -- unless it came from the other body,m lying so quietly in a ditch. The body of a very dead man that nobody mourned, or even missed.

Detective Campion suspects that the murderer will be present at the bash, and his clever sleuthing provides mystery readers with the twists of plot and a surprise ending to baffle and delight!« less
