The death of unpopular Herbert Terrell seems accidental - although this expert mountain climber plunged off a mere hill in Czechoslovakia. The saddest part of the tragedy is that no one cares, not his ex-wife, his step daughter Tossa at Oxford, or his colleagues at a British scientific institute...until Tossa is shocked into emotion by a mysterious note suggesting Terrell was murdered.
Inspector Felse's college-age son, Dominic, is spending his first summer abroad and has fallen in love with Tossa, a woman who appears to be arranging their travel itinerary for her own inscrutable purposes.
Solve another case with Inspector Felse .
