(From the publisher):
When Mr Marble poisoned his nephew he thought all his troubles were over. In fact they were just about to begin.
Payment Deferred shows the creator of Hornblower in a different vein. It is a chilling story whose oppressive suspense accumulates like storm cloud - until relief is brought by the masterly shock ending.
