The stabbing of irascible General Sir Arthur Billington-Smith fails to stir up grief in anyone - least of all his family, which is no wonder considering the way he had treated them all during the fateful weekend. Inspector Harding picks his way through a mass of familial discontent to find the culprit - and find much more besides.
The stabbing of irascible General Sir Arthur Billington-Smith fails to stir up grief in anyone - least of all his family, which is no wonder considering the way he had treated them all during the fateful weekend.

Inspector Harding picks his way through a mass of familial discontent to find the culprit - and find much more besides.
