Jeffery Bruster is driving his 1933 Hispano-Suiza J12 cabriolet along a West Country road on a wicked night of rain and fog when he sees a woman in a satin dress at the side of the road.
He offers her a lift which she neither accepts nor rejects. He gets out and urges her to let him take her somewhere warm. She is crying.
How did Gwendolyn de LaRoux come to be there? Why is she silent? What has happened back at Lady Lea-Maskerville's estate?
When Jeffery finds out, Gwendolyn misses one important detail; her husband Vincent has been murdered, shot through the chest.
Here's a classic English tale of mystery and murder with side trips to France, Belgium, Australia and the Congo.
Fall in love with Gwendolyn and Jeffery and a tale of murder and marriage.
