(From the publisher):
Gordon Cloade is killed in an air-raid on London. He has left no will and his vast fortune passes to his young wife, Rosaleen.
But five other people have been promised a share in that fortune -- five people who desperately need the money. Now it can only become theirs if Rosaleen should happen to die before them.
There are five people with a strong motive for murder -- and violent murder is committed.
But Rosaleen is not the victim...
