ALEX SUMMERILL was the confidante of thousands of readers of the daily newspaper to which she contributed a weekly advice column. Her warm-hearted counsel went out all over England, to distracted lovers, women with faithless husbands, men with faithless wives, parents with difficult children, children with unaccommodating parents, young men wanting to find the perfect woman. Occasionally she received letters confessing to quite serious crimes. Realising what a perfect gold mine her correspondence could be for anyone with a slight leaning to blackmail, Alex took exceptional care of the letters sent her by readers. But it was a letter which didn't reach her that precipitated murder. This is a blackmail story with a difference, told in inimitable fashion by the gifted Elizabeth Ferrars.
