Storyline

Jaded Dian de Momerie and Todd Milligan crash the Duchess of Denver's cocktail party, and Lord Peter is tasked by his sister-in-law with throwing them out. Dian thinks she recognizes Wimsey as Harlequin, but he successfully convinces her that he is really his look-alike black sheep cousin Bredon and hints that he is a drug dealer also. Wimsey later meets the pair in his Harlequin/Bredon identity and proposes an alliance of their drug-dealing operations. Meanwhile Parker tracks down a suspect who passed cocaine in a pub to the Natural History Museum. Written by duke1029@aol.com
