(From the publisher):
The swinging corpse in Hangman's Spinney raised the curtain on a deep and mystifying case... Who had killed Cecil Biggs-Winterbottom - joint master of the East Flinderley Hunt? Was it the other Hunt Master, Desmond Farquarson? And if so, why? Was his love of the Hunt a motive strong enough for murder?
Blake investigated - and in the process crossed swords with many odd people in the Flinderley community. The gun-toting Isobel Carlton, Farquarson's tempestuous, golden-haired fiancee... Japheth, the sinister waiter at the Duke's Head Inn, a man with a criminal record and of doubtful sanity... Ifor Jones-Jones, eccentric Welsh culture-vulture and Nature lover... Amanda Pritchett, the lisping Awful Child whose folly nearly cost Blake his life...
With the help of Blake's faithful old bloodhound, Pedro, the Berkeley Square trio follow the scent of a highly unorthodox killer in a memorable case involving country-house high life, rustic pleasures, and murder most macabre!
