Storyline: Even the vicar, looking down at Diana Wheeler's smashed beautiful body, could not summon a charitable Christian phrase. There was hardly a person at Amble Wickstead who had not good reason to wish her dead. So it did seem rather odd that this superb horsewoman should die by being thrown from her own horse... until the post mortem revealed a fatal quantity of drugs in her. She was an addict, it was true, and an alcoholic, it could have been an accident. Superintendent Paul Grainger, that scholarly and inexorable searcher for truth, found enough motives to kill to make a lesser detective dizzy. Several husbands, lovers, fathers, rivals, victims, and fortune-hunters all tangled his trail, and it was not until the killer struck again, and then again, that he was able to pin him down. This exciting detective novel was found among Fiona Sinclair's papers after she died so tragically at the end of 1961.
