Freezing and hungry, George Lassiter breaks into a stranger’s house where he witnesses a murder. But when the police find no evidence, they—and George’s friend Jack Haldean—believe George was delirious. Dangerous events soon prove everyone wrong.
Dolores Gordon-Smith is the author of two previous mysteries in the Jack Haldean series. She graduated from Surrey University in 1981.
