Storyline

Lord Peter sails to America to find exculpatory evidence for his brother Jerry's murder trial in the House of Lords. If he cannot get back in time to submit the evidence, Sir Impey Biggs, the Duke's defense counsel, will have to call Mrs. Grimthorpe as an alibi witness. The Duke is dead set against that as it will ruin his own marriage and put the lady in physical danger from her misanthropic, pathologically jealous husband. Written by duke1029@aol.com
