In the height of an English summer, Grandfather is found dead in the little Grecian lodge among the rose gardens of his estate. Inspector Cockrill has reason to believe that Sir Richard met with an untimely death, and that the evildoer is among the genteel family gathered at the rural manor. But why on earth would one of the loving brood do such a dreadful thing? Simple: the night he died, cantankerous Sir Richard was arranging to disinherit his offspring for the umpteenth time. Someone took murderous steps to protect their own interests. But the murderer left no scuff in the carefully raked sand paths, no trace on the manicured lawns of Swanswater
