When Inspector Gibbs investigates the murder of Old Farson of Hance House, he faces one of the most difficult cases of his career. As a moneylender, all of Farson's debtors are under suspicion: but which of them knew that Farson had unexpectedly returned from London that night? And which of them possessed the medical knowledge necessary to deliver such a precise wound to the heart? The police are convinced that aspiring young archaeologist Harry Marish is the obvious suspect. Harry's uncle, Dr Kaithe, is convinced his nephew is innocent - but then Dr Kaithe has secrets of his own....

Originally published in 1931 in Collins's celebrated 'Crime Club' imprint, this is a classic British murder mystery from the golden age of crime fiction!
