SYNOPSIS
IF an impecunious author had not accidentally intercepted a telephone call, the mysterious case of Miss Faintley might have defied even Mrs Bradley's efforts at solution. The telephone message began, 'Faintley speaking .. . and proceeded with instructions to collect a parcel from the local railway station and deliver it to a somewhat shady shopkeeper. The impecunious author delivered the parcel and was so unwise as to demand payment for it.... Not long after, Miss Faintley was murdered. It seemed at first unlikely that she, a prim, quiet schoolmistress, could have anything to do with gang-workó or with currency smuggling
