SYNOPSIS
WHEN Mr. Babbacombe, having made his pile, retired, it was unfortunate that his quiet bachelor existence should be marred by attacks of gastritis. It was fortunate that before succumbing to a particularly bad attack, he expressed a wish to be cremated. The stringent formalities necessary for cremation require the calling in of another doctor, who in this case happened to be a police surgeon. He suspected arsenic, and Inspector Arnold of Scotland Yard is summoned. Mr. Babbacombe Dies is a very ingenious mystery, which is solved by the admirable use of sheer common sense.
