The main reason for William Marshall's visit to St. Genebald was to write articles about a famous English actress. He was also hoping that the local peace and quiet would help him to recover from a mild breakdown he had recently suffered in Boston. A body came tumbling down from the tree tops. Was it suicide? Bill thought it was murder and set about persuading people of the fact. He worked so hard at it that he became number one suspect. Everybody doubted his sanity. There were times when he doubted it himself, especially when — The dead woman popped back one night to see him; soft crackling footsteps pursued him through the depth of the wood.
