'No sign of foul play,' says Dr Carr after the post-mortem on Agatha Dawson. The
case is closed. But Lord Peter Wimsey is not satisfied . . .
With no clues to work on, he begins his own investigation. No clues, that is, until
the sudden, senseless murder of Agatha's maid. What is going on in the mysterious
Mrs Forrest's Mayfair flat? And can Wimsey catch a desperate murderer before he
himself becomes one of the victims?
