"When Sir Peregrine Piers decided to open his stately home to the public, Regency Rakes Ltd was formed to promote it. Spectacular stunts were planned: a regency rout and hunting supper, and a midnight steeplechase. Nathaniel Goss, magazine publisher and amateur detective, took a lively interest in Regency Rakes, the more so as he had recently joined a shooting syndicate whose terrain bordered on Sir Peregrine's land. The syndicate is composed of some oddly-assorted characters, among them the odious Dyson and the gruff Blaze, and headed by the immaculate Archie Crumbe-Howard. Dyson meets a sticky end in a particularly nasty shooting accident - or was it design? Domestic strife becomes rife, the keeper's unmarried daughter is alleged to be pregnant, and a suspicion piles upon suspicion. A startling climax is reached at the midnight steeplechase."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
