When the dead come calling, the darkness deepens and the living tremble in fear...

When the esteemed Sir Stephen Maxtondale and his solicitor pay a surprise visit to the London offices of Camberwell and Chaney, two brilliant investigators, it becomes clear that an extraordinary enigma awaits them. 

Sir Stephen was puzzled and more than a little worried. A man claiming to be his elder brother John had appeared the day before, and then vanished without a trace. Sir Stephen suspected foul play and  was even questioning his claim to the baronetcy.  Chaney foresaw trouble – with a fortune of £50,000 per year hanging in the balance, the threat of foul deeds couldn’t be ignored. 

Chaney and Camberwell return to Heronswood, the Maxtondales’ ancestral home, with Sir Stephen.  But, before the case is near being solved, the number of crimes becomes so alarming that the residents start to wonder – is a homicidal maniac at large? And if so – who’s the next target?

Joseph Smith Fletcher (1863-1935) was a superlative master of mystery with over one hundred detective stories to his credit, including The Dressing Room Murder, The Middle of Things, The Charing Cross Mystery and biblio-mysteries, Who Killed Alfred Snowe? and The Yorkshire Moorland Mystery.
