A chill grey dawn began to break over London's river. It was quiet near the warehouse where P.C. Farrow lay —the blood oozing from his throat and chest, inside the killers waited, surrounded, and the smell of some strange incense pervaded the atmosphere. What were they doing? Something for which they would kill, or commit suicide, to keep secret. Were they drug pedlars, devil worshippers or political agitators ? This is clearly a case for Special Agent Bruce Murdoch. A case that brings him against all the mysterious practices of the East, and takes him from the satin lined love nest of a delicious blonde to the strange splendours of Bombay's palaces.

SUPERINTENDENT FOLLY. Considerable hostility had been aroused in the village of Walford. The cause was the arrival of Jonathan Courtney to live at Dingle Cottage, which was situated near St Catherine's. Run by Kate Marlowe, this institution was a school for orphan girls: and what was upsetting the villagers was the fact that Courtney had recently been tried for strangling his wife and child. He had been acquitted-buf many people still insisted he was guilty. Anonymous letters about him began arriving shortly after he'd moved in. Then one of the St Catherine's girls disappeared, and another was found-strangled. It seemed undoubtedly a case for Folly
