The book was based on the author's play of the same name. From Goodreads: A sparkling 1920s melodrama with twists and turns that keep the reader engrossed throughout. Sir John and Faith Marlay, happily married, are going along quite steadily with their lives until an unwanted arrival at the doctor's consulting rooms. This leads to blackmail and subsequently murder. Misunderstandings abound about who the murderer was but eventually the truth comes out and in a dramatic climax the whole story ends up happily.--Goodreads.com. [Suggest a different description.]
