Publisher's Summary

When a dismembered corpse is found in the compartments of an antique secretaire a abattant, Marshall Trueblood, recipient of the precious piece of furniture, is the first to protest: "I bought the desk, not the body, send it back" Who would want to kill Simon Lean, the greedy nephew of the wealthy Lady Summerston?
Leave it to Superintendent Richard Jury of Scotland Yard to suggest a connection to the murder of brassy Limehouse lady named Sadie Driver, found dead near Wapping Old Stairs - if that stone-cold body on the slipway is really Sadie. Not even her brother, Tommy, on a visit from Gravesend, can swear to it.

Great Narration

Steve West has really captured the voice of Richard Jury and associates. This is a wonderful narration and I really hope that he continues to narrate the rest of the series.

Diabolical !

What a diabolical imagination! Obfuscation all the way in this one which has a murder in the country and one in a transitional neighborhood in London that are totally connected. The happy ending part of me wishes that the orphaned brother and the totally bereft grandmother could be left together.
Steve West does a remarkable narration with this one.
