Beguiled into wintry Essex to investigate the sudden eccentricity of a cat, Nigel Strangeways finds himself introduced to a house-party seething with secret fears and tensions.
Almost immediately, the cat loses the center of the stage to a corpse, apparently a suicide. But suspicious Nigel is off on the trail of "whodunit"; follows the trail, mentally, all the way to America; only to have two children discover the grisly evidence right on home territory, when a great thaw takes its toll of their snowman.
