Storyline

Not only has Lord Peter recruited Miss Murchison to help gather evidence on the guilt of Boyes' cousin and solicitor Urquhart, he's able to get a copy of the actual will by having Miss Climpson insinuate herself into Mrs. Wrayburn's household and ingratiating herself with the senile woman's caregiver by feigning a belief in spiritualism and staging a phony séance. Even with this new evidence, it's still an open question as to how Boyes was given the fatal dose of arsenic. Written by duke1029@aol.com
