For the victim was none other than Sir William Bittons nephew, dressed in a golfing suit and wearing Sir Williams stolen opera hat. And tying Sir William to his murdered nephew with a scarlet thread was the stolen manuscript of a completely unknown story said to be the handiwork of Edgar Allan Poe.In a tale as freighted with menace as the Traitors Gate, portly Dr. Fell unravels a crime unique by even his standards of the bizarre.
