    The tranquility of the Wimsey family’s Yorkshire retreat is shattered by a death in the family. Mary Wimsey’s fiancé, Denis, receives a letter that prompts him to flee Riddlesdale Lodge.

Why both siblings were out for late-night strolls puzzles Lord Peter, who joins the case to prove Gerard’s innocence.
