Description

Sidney Grice, London's most perspicacious personal detective, is depressed. Ever since his last case sent one of his clients to the gallows, business has been light. Grice has taken to lying in the bath for hours. Usually a voracious reader, he will pick up neither book nor newspaper. His ward, March Middleton, has been left to dine alone. But when a potential client has the temerity to die on his study floor, Sidney and March finally have a case to investigate. And this one will lead them into the strange world of Final Death Societies, and to the door of the mysterious Baroness Foskett.
