FIVE men were gathered together one August evening In the bar of an old coaching inn, The Swan, In the little village of Micheigreen, They were representative of any small country community In England: a farmer, a doctor, a retired colonel, a prosperous business man, and an old sea captain. It was an ordinary enough occasion, a quick drink after a council meeting, but It was the prelude to strange happenings in Micheigreen. On that very night one of the five was to die mysteriously, and later another became the victim of a curious accident. Inspector Arnold of Scotland Yard and Desmond Merrion, his friend, find a village afraid when they come down at the request of the local police to investigate the untimely end of a leading citizen.
