ERNEST DUDLEY is an English author known to millions of crime fiction addicts for his weekly Armchair Detective radio broadcasts, and also for the Doctor Morelle series of stories (and radio plays) in which the shrewd detective-psychiatrist solved countless mysteries with the aid of his assistant, Miss Frayle. Dudley has revealed that Dr. Morelle has his genesis in a coal cellar in Bristol in 1940, where the author (who already worked for the BBC Variety Department) sat out German air-raids. "The character of Dr. Morelle," Mr Dudley has remarked, "was finally evolved from my memories of the silent film star Erich von Stroheim - who incidentally nearly played the part years later in a film version - and whom Hollywood used to bill as 'The Man You Love to Hate.' In order to point up the self-opinionated biting sarcasm of Dr Morelle, I gave him as a foil a pretty feather brained secretary, Miss Frayle. And so, Dr Morelle was let loose on millions of unsuspecting listeners, the first fictional character, I think, whom people hated so much they simply had to tune in and listen to him."

This fourth mystery novel in which the noted psychiatrist-detective, Dr. Morelle, and his Secretary, Miss Frayle, set out to probe a murder, begins when beautiful Thelma Grayson called at Dr. Morelle's house in Harley Street, and vividly describes how, the night before, she had deliberately shot the notorious Ray Mercury. Mercury, Thelma tells Dr. Morelle, had been directly responsible for her sister's suicide. The morning newspapers have, however, reported that Mercury shot himself. The question she now asks is: should she give herself up to the police, or should they be left to believe that Mercury, who anyway deserved to die, really had committed suicide? Dr. Morelle's search for the answer leads him through a series of dark adventures in Soho's underworld, and involves him and Miss Frayle with a very odd assortment of characters, before he unravels the mystery sur-rounding Mercury's death and finally traps the murderer.
