Two pieces of news sent Tony West to France to investigate them in spite of a lifelong distaste for tiresome and unpleasant matters. One was the fact that his brother Peter had been murdered in Paris. The other was his nomination as sole heir to the large estate, though he had scarcely seen his brother for years. A beautiful artist, former friend of Peter, the tracing of some missing money left behind by the Germans during the Occupation, and the discovery of the murderer led Tony West down some strange and fascinating paths that changed his whole life.

Here is an absorbing story of the mysterious life and death of an expatriate Englishman, plus a very well done backdrop picturing Paris and a French village.—Dustcover. [Suggest a different description.]
