A bobby on his night rounds discovers a corpse in evening dress locked in the stocks on the village green. Inspector Hannasyde is called in, but sorting out the suspects proves a challenge. Anyone in the eccentric, exceedingly uncooperative Vereker family had the motive and means to kill Andrew Vereker, who seemed to have been universally disliked. One cousin allies himself with the inspector, while the victim’s half-brother and sister, each of whom suspects the other, markedly try to set him off the scent. To readers’ delight, the killer is so cunning (not to mention the author), that the mystery remains until the very end…
