Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a dismembered corpse is found in the compartments of an antique secretaire a abattant, Marshall Trueblood, recipient of the precious piece of furniture, is the first to protest: "I bought the desk, not the body, send it back." Who would want to kill Simon Lean, the greedy nephew of the wealthy Lady Summerston?

Leave it to Superintendent Richard Jury of Scotland Yard to suggest a connection to the murder of brassy Limehouse lady named Sadie Driver, found dead near Wapping Old Stairs...if that stone-cold body on the slipway is really Sadie. Not even her brother, Tommy, on a visit from Gravesend, can swear to it.

Synopsis:

While vacationing in a small village, Scotland Yard superintendent Richard Jury finds the body of notorious philanderer Simon Lean. An endless list of suspects leads Jury and Melrose Plant to a London pub called the Five Bells and Bladebone, where he learns about Lean's liaison with a woman who could have helped solve the case--if she weren't already dead.
