When his wife’s friend, Rachel, writes to tell of the peculiar murder of a young woman in her sleepy market town, Dr. David Wintringham is intrigued enough to leave his usual top secret medical work for Her Majesty’s Government to pay a visit to Shornford, where the local police are struggling to make sense of events.
