But then a freak accident changes everything. And suddenly the life Basil had planned seems to be on the edge of ruin.
Things are complicated further by the arrival of a half-sister Basil had never known about.
And when his newly-discovered sister, Laura, is found dead on his property, Basil’s prospects take a turn for the worse.
Scotland Yard’s Chief Superintendent Pollard and Detective Inspector Toye are called in to investigate Laura’s death.
Was it a freak accident? Or is Basil now a murder suspect?
And how is this death connected to the disappearance of a local girl…?
