IT was Mr. Maberley, the fussy little station master at Filmerham, who made the discovery, and immediately the well-ordered routine of his little world was entirely upset. The finding of the body on the railway meant an inquest, the calling in of the police and a tremendous sensation when it became known that murder was suspected. In fact the case rapidly grew in importance, for here was a mystery that challenged -the formidable power of Superintendent Han-slet and the redoubtable Dr. Priestley himself. Against their combined operations a criminal would have very little chance, but such was the ingenuity of the murderer in this case that he certainly gave them some very good hunting.
