The extremely aristocratic but extremely thick Blotto and his extremely brainy sister Twinks are attending a weekend house party when the inevitable happens. Their hostess, the Dowager Duchess of Melmont, is murdered. An amateur detective, conveniently staying for the weekend, deduces that the Lyminster family chauffeur Corky Froggett must have done it. For Blotto and Twinks, the only way to prove Corky's innocence is by finding the real perpetrator. So begins the second investigation for the daring duo ... one which takes them via an opium den in Limehouse, a Scottish castle and a disused Cornis.

I have enjoyed 26 out of 28 from this author, but I struggled to get through 50 pages of this one.
It's pages are full of his descriptions and assumptions of how the so-called "classes" live, behave and speak. I found it silly, highly exaggerated, not credible, and very annoying. e.g. "…how did you know all that stuff about the stencher who coffinated the Dowager Duchess? Did you actually see the running sore in action?" Add to such as this, Corky Froggett the driver, Proops the butler, Clutterbuck the dog, and on and on.
