Leading industrialist Trevor Cornwall was found dead at the gates of his daughter's estate. It was remarkable not only that he had been mysteriously shot but also that the murderer had already delivered an obituary notice to a newspaper. Then there was another murder...Were the murdered men victims of a crazed killer or someone who had felt wronged by these prominent personalities? This was to prove a baffling case for DCI Dysart and Dr John Thorneycroft and there would be many surprises before the killer was finally unmasked in a sensational denouement. Another winner from a much loved author.
