During her lifetime Mrs. Mottis-font was a domineering, possessive woman and her sudden death was lamented by no one, least of all her god-son, Eric Holcroft, whom she had browbeaten all his life. The story opens with Inspector Waghorn driving to the remote hamlet of Badgersmead to investigate her death and before long both he and the reader are plunged' into a complexity of motives and opportunities which provide us with one of John Rhode's most ingenious plots.
