Having been unsuccessful in solving their most recent case, Tommy and Tuppence find themselves trying to solve the murder of Gilda Glenn, a well-known stage actress. She was known to have entered a local house but the occupants have sound explanations for where they were at the time of the killing and the local policeman was keeping a close eye on the house, as the owner was afraid of burglars. When Tommy's wartime pal Bulger Estcourt is arrested, Tommy decides to stage a re-creation. Written by
