Summary

Campion returns from three years work for the War Office in Europe to find that Lugg, his manservant, has brought him an unusual gift: the black silk nightdress-clad body of a dead woman, an apparent suicide. Wanting only to get away to a well-deserved rest, Campion must instead assist Detective Chief Inspector Oates and Superintendent Yeo in unravelling a tangled plot of deception and murder, as the war draws to its conclusion.

Despite Champion's best efforts it is difficult for Champion not to help solve the mystery of a dead woman placed in his bed. As the days tick pass the bodies pile up and the plot thickens with more evidence pointing to his friend as the mastermind.

Well told and well paced made this an enjoyable tale
