It concerns the various residents of a single street, who become embroiled in a growing attitude of mistrust and suspicion when a series of strange warnings begin to be received by members of the neighbourhood. Warnings of death soon become a series of dangerous pranks and Desmond Merrion, friend of one of the victims, is asked to investigate.
It isn’t unlike the setting of some books by Agatha Christie in a way. The premise is simple. Someone is sending things through the post that are slightly threatening. Who? Why? What will happen next? Who can be trusted? Those and many other questions will be answered by time you finish the last page.
A mystery story written by Cecil Street under the pseudonym of Miles Burton. Features Desmond Merrion and Inspector Arnold.
