Maxwell Douglas-Forbes, QC entangles Elspeth Duff in a strange case of murder which takes her to the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Gerald Bain had disappeared on Lewis almost seven years before and presumed dead, but suddenly he reappears when his wife is about to declare him dead and marry Tom Ramsey. Then Gerald is found dead in a garden at Cressida’s parents’ home. It seems to be murder as Gerald has been stabbed seven times. Max sends Elspeth to find out where Gerald has been for the seven years, an assignment she willingly takes to distract her from her own grief at finding compromising photographs showing her husband has been unfaithful to her. He follows trying to explain.
