Storyline

Accompanied by his brother-in-law, Scotland Yard Inspector Parker, Wimsey is able to wring confessions from Cranton as well as Jim and Will Thoday as to their complicity in the death of Deacon, but is still unable to identify the actual killer or means of murder. However, he is able to deduce the location of the emeralds which rightfully belong to Hilry Thorpe. Meanwhile, when very heavy rains threaten to break through an already weakened sluice and destroy the village, Reverend Venables makes preparation for the congregation to use the church as a safe haven in case of flood. The tragic death of one of the accessories ultimately does provide Wimsey with the evidence he needs to deduce how Deacon met his death. Written by duke1029@aol.com
