Mr. John Waterhouse died of arsenical poisoning. There was no one in the village of Anneypenney who bore him ill-will, yet he had undoubtedly been murdered. The story Is told through the mouth of a close friend of the dead man who knew all the facts and who, though no detective, finally solved the riddle. There are glimpses of English village life, and of two unusual women; and it may perhaps be hinted that even the Nazis were not uninterested in the death of this English squire.
