Harry and Gerry compete for the hand of the comely Viola Carwell. Unfortunately for Harry, his family recently took advantage of Viola’s father Horace in a business deal and consequently the money-troubled patriarch is rumored to be cool toward Harry. Old man Horace dies in the middle of a golf match. The cause of death is poison. Was it suicide due to financial problems? Or was it murder, with Harry as the prime suspect? It’s up to super sleuth Detective Colonel Ashley and his servant Shag to solve the case. The Colonel would rather be fishing, but murder has a way of interrupting his reading of Walton's Compleat Angler. Curl up with this classic British mystery from Chester K. Steele, author of The Mansion of Mystery.
