hosting a shooting party at Riddlesdale Hall, the Duke of
Denver is found in the middle of the night, standing over
the body of his sister's fiancée who has been shot
through the heart. The Duke refuses to provide an alibi, and
is subsequently arrested.
Peter is determined to prove his brother's innocence, yet
finds him strangely uncooperative. Furthermore, other family

His sister Lady Mary seems to know more than she is letting

the unhappy alternative of sending either his brother of his

the end of the day this is yet another entertaining murder
mystery that will keep amateur sleuths entertained.
