The little town of Martley is alive with gossip concerning Julius Hennessy, who has been spending a great deal of time on the golf links with the young and pretty wife of Mr. Holt the solicitor. Mrs. Hennessy, meanwhile, has also been exciting gossip, on account of the amount of time she has been spending on the river fishing in the company of Bill French. Thomas Brown, a man whose interest in criminology has led to a growing friendship with Captain Maylem of the local police, has also attracted curiosity - what could possibly have led Brown to embark on a month's stay in a backwater like Martley?

When Hennessy is found murdered on the bank of the river, however, idle gossip quickly turns into full-blown suspicion...

Originally published in 1933, this is a vintage British murder mystery from the golden age of crime fiction.
