"Poor and hungry, but determined to win a wager made months earlier and half a world away, mystery writer Christopher Kent swindles breakfast at London's Royal Scarlet Hotel -- and unexpectedly finds himself fleeing a darkened suite occupied by the corpse of a brutally murdered woman. Enlisting the aid of the celebrated sleuth Dr. Gideon Fell, Kent discovers, to his horror, that the corpse is the wife of his cousin Rodney, who was murdered in identical fashion two weeks earlier at a country estate miles away. Tracing clues from Sussex to South Africa and back, Dr. Fell and the police follow a trail of madness and mayhem to a resolution unexpectedly, and dangerously, close to home. "
