His accused murderer was Wimsey's own elder brother, and if murder set all in the family wasn't enough to boggle the unflappable Lord Wimsey, perhaps a few twists of fate would be -- a mysterious vanishing midnight letter from Egypt .... a grieving fiancee (Lord Peter's sister!) with suitcase in hand .... and a bullet destined for one very special Wimsey
