Synopsis
IN a narrow lane that runs into Trumpington Street, Cambridge, the dead body of a baronetórun through with a French bayonet ówas found on the Monday night of May Week. Other murders quickly followed, day after day. Colonel Nugent, the Chief Constable of South Cambridgeshire, and his " amateur " friend, Major Hem-yock discovered two things from the startóthe connecting link between the murdered people and the motive. But although that enabled them to foretell future crimes and even to see in advance who was most likely to be killed, it did not tell them who was the murderer. That only became possible after a series of brilliant deductions by Major Hemyock, and at the end of the most exciting May Week in Cambridge history.
