Receiving the letter on the day of her funeral, Gertrude Powell's son brings it to the attention of Detective Inspector C.D. Sloan. First, Sloan must stop the funeral in progress. Then he has to investigate Powell's posthumous claims. Is the letter just the ravings of an ill, somewhat melodramatic woman? Or is something very sinister going on at Almstone Manor, whose residents have known each other for more than fifty years and some of whose very old grudges may run very deep indeed...
