If a blackmail letter drives a man to suicide, is the sender guilty of murder? "Yes," says Oliver Swithin, author of bestselling Finsbury the Ferret children's stories and amateur sleuth, who is on holiday in an ancient village. A midnight streak with his girlfriend-Scotland Yard's Effie Strongitham-abruptly ends in the discovery of a corpse. Retired radiobroadcaster Dennis Breedlove has hanged himself. Irresistibly intrigued, Oliver believes discovering the dead man's secret will lead to the identity of the blackmailer. But in Britain today, when shame is a ticket to fame, why suicide? It's time to put the laugh back into slaughter with the long-awaited third chapter in the career of Oliver Swithin.
