Storyline

Campion receives an enigmatic anonymous letter alerting him to the death of a old schoolmate, nicknamed "The Pig" who bullied and hazed him when he was younger. Three months later he is recruited by Sir Leo Pursuivant to help him investigate the murder of a man who was planning an unpopular development project in the area. Someone evidently pushed a heavy concrete urn from an upper balcony which fell onto his head. The corpse looks like "The Pig" or a close relative, but the investigation is thwarted when the body mysteriously disappears. Written by duke10-29@aol.com

Quotes

Magersfontein Lugg: It's another of those queer letters.
Albert Campion: [reading from a letter] "Oh, sayeth the owl. Oh-ho sobbeth the frog. Oh-ho mourneth the worm. The angel weepeth behind golden bars. Consider, oh, consider the lowly mole. His small hands are sore and his snout bleedeth. Where is Peters that was promised us?"
Magersfontein Lugg: Owls, frogs, worms and bleeding moles. Must be like a zoo up there.
