What this book is about
So it was that when the supreme scandal of murder struck and struck again at the Hilton menage, it aroused not horror so much as outraged indignation at an unpardonable social gaffe. The burden of investigation fell as usual on Inspector Gobb and Dr. Westlake, more harassed than helped by the suggestions of his engaging small daughter Dawn.

Absorbing, thrilling and highly entertaining, enriched with a superb gallery of Hilton portraits, this is Jonathan Stagge at the top of his form. The late Torquemanda once wrote in The Observer:
"Jonathan Slagge—I say this in the most congratulatory sense—has a really nasty mind. I recommend him to all who have a sound head and a strong heart."

Jonathan Stagge - The Characters
Dr Hugh Westlake
In an age when most medical detectives are specialists in pathology or psychiatry, Dr. Hugh Cavendish Westlake is an anachronism; a poor, hardworking general practitioner. Westlake's practice is in the small eastern town of Kenmore, where he resides with his young daughter, Dawn. Westlake has been a widower for a number of years. Dr. Westlake is still a young man; he was only 31 at the time of his wife's death. In his later cases (dating from about 1939 or 1940) he shows a reawakening interest in women. Dawn and he share the propensity for getting involved in murder cases, keeping him too busy to be caught by someone looking for an eligible widower. The doctor frequently visits the larger town of Grovestown, where he shares an occasional highball, and a murder investigation, with Inspector Cobb, his friend.
