The problem is the potential derailment of her sons wedding by the discovery, in his bed, of the body of a distinctly inappropriate girl who seems to have swallowed a fatal handful of pills. Never one to be cowed, the Marchioness enlists a friend to dump the body in a temporarily empty flat. But the flats owner?Albert Campion?returns home unexpectedly, on brief leave from the war. Understandably a bit put out, Campion determines nonetheless to carry out his original plan: A fast change of clothing and then off to the country. The police, however, have other ideas.
