    Die Studenten Brandon und Granillo sind überzeugt, ihn begangen zu haben. Keine Motive, keine Hinweise und das Opfer, ihr Mitstudent Ronald, liegt gut verstaut in einer Truhe im Wohnzimmer. In Kürze werden Gäste zum Cocktail erwartet. Als Buffet soll, für den Nervenkitzel, das Möbel mit der Leiche dienen... Niemand ahnt etwas. Nur Rupert Cadell, Dichter und ehemaliger Mentor der beiden, beschleicht im locker-makabren Partytalk ein mörderischer Verdacht.

    London, 1939, and in the grimy publands of Earl's Court, George Harvey Bone is pursuing a helpless infatuation. Netta is cool, contemptuous and hopelessly desirable to George. George is adrift in a drunken hell except in his dead moments, when something goes click in his head and he realises, without a doubt, that he must kill her.

    Measuring out the wartime days in a small town on the Thames, Miss Roach is not unattractive but no longer quite young. The Rosamund Tea Rooms boardinghouse, where she lives with half a dozen others, is as grey and lonely as its residents. For Miss Roach, 'slave of her task-master, solitude', a shaft of not altogether welcome light is suddenly beamed upon her with the appearance of a charismatic and emotional American lieutenant.

    In Craven House, among the shifting, uncertain world of the English boardinghouse, with its sad population of the shabby genteel on the way down and the eternal optimists who would never get up or on, the young Patrick Hamilton, with loving, horrified fascination, first mapped out the territory that he would make uniquely his own. Although many of Hamilton's lifelong interests are here, they are handled with a youthful brio and optimism conspicuously absent from his later work.
