"You're the murder man, aren't you?" Mrs. James demanded.

"Well, that's not exactly how I describe myself," Bobby answered.

Bobby Owen and his wife Olive are on holiday, enjoying a motor tour of England, when they visit Bobby's old ancestral home and his cousin Myra. An eerie air hangs over the household, where Teddy Peel, a psychic medium of dubious repute, has become a fixture. Myra's husband himself is a specialist in African folklore, the owner of a genuine witch doctor's bag. What's inside the bag, and how that connects to the promise of riches, whispered threats and very real murder, forms another absorbing puzzler for Bobby.

Six Were Present (1956) is the thirty-fifth and final novel in the Bobby Owen Mystery series, here presented with a new introduction and additional notes. This new edition also features the script of the rare radio play Death on the Up-Lift (1941), starring Bobby Owen, here published for the first time.
