Summary
Set in 1940 during the blitz in England, Harriot Vane, now Lady Peter Wimsey, flees with her children to the family country estate. However, no place is safe in a county with several airfields. A girl is discovered dead after an air-raid drill. She turns out to be murdered, rather than a victim of enemy fire originally thought by the townspeople. Lord Peter returns from assignment abroad to join Lady Harriet in finding the murderer before he preys on someone else
