“The murders are
most ingeniously planned and executed, and even Dr. Priestley is put to a
severe test before the story is ended.” —The New York Times

garden. Thus passed the Chairman of the Board of Porslin Ltd.



Some months later
another member of the same board of directors died in mysterious circumstances.
Still another followed shortly.
