SYNOPSIS

FOR a long time Muriel Far-rington had ruled the lives of her children, gathering them all together, married or single, under the same roof in the old family mansion. She made a fetish of getting her own way, and liked to do it gracefully if possible, but if there was any resistance she could always rely on the subtle effects ofthe time-honoured heart attack. Self-satisfied, and selfish beyond belief, she did not sense the bitter resentment that burned in the breasts of her family, and was far from realising the point of desperation reached by one of them, a desperation which was leading inexorably to her own destruction. For Chief-Inspector Macdonald this was not one of the easy cases, but it is one of E. C. R. Lorac's best.
