When a body is discovered while scallop dredging, tied at the ankles and weighed down with stones, the Isle of Man is thrown into uproar. But this is more than a case of drowning; medical report reveals a grisly and brutal attack that ended with death. The victim: Cedric Lewis. With an extravagant house and a licentious reputation, the philanderer was no friend to his community. After being reported missing, it is discovered that letters forwarded to Lewis' room in San Remo were returned and he was charged for the room he never claimed. Was Lewis murdered for his money - or is this more than a crime of convenience? Under the pretence of a holiday, Chief Inspector Littlejohn is invited by his old friend Archdeacon Kinrade to unofficially assist with the murder investigation. Kinrade is certain the man accused is innocent, and wants Littlejohn's help to uncover the truth. Littlejohn is happy to help but town gossip and mysterious stories surrounding the ancient Cursing Stones make it difficult to separate fact from fiction...
