A SIR HENRY MERRIVALE MYSTERY. A suicide pact was just the sort of notion that would appeal to Rita Wainwright. Her notorious love affair with the young American actor Barry Sullivan was flamboyant enough to warrant a dramatic ending so when the two of them vanished over a cliff one rainy night leaving only a farewell note for Ritas husband and a pair of footprints to the edge no one doubted that it was suicide. No one that is but Doctor Luke Ritas old family doctor and one of the few people in the seaside village of Lyncombe who genuinely liked her. When amateur detective Sir Henry Merrivale who is in the district having his portrait done by a local artist agrees to investigate the questions start piling up. But what of it? Are the doctors doubts without merit or was there a more sinister plot at play? It takes the blustering rampaging H.M. to solve this baffling mystery.
