Sir Henry Angkatell
John Cristow MD
Detective Segeant Penny
During a dinner party held by Sir Henry and Lady Angkatell, one of the weekend guests John Cristow, is shot dead.
There are any number of suspects: his former lover, Veronica Craye whom he had not seen for 12 years but suddenly turned up at a nearby cottage; his wife, Gerda who was deeply hurt by his womanising; Midge Hardcastle, who was very much in love with him, but whom he constantly ignored; and Edward Angkatell, who was in love with Midge.
The evidence implicates everyone just a little too equally for it all to be just by chance.
