Amateur sleuth Mordecai Tremaine and Chief Inspector Jonathan Boyce are never pleased to have a promising game of chess interrupted - though when murder is the disrupting force, they are persuaded to make an exception. A quick stop at Scotland Yard to collect the trusted murder bag, and the pair is off to Bridgton. No sooner have they arrived than it becomes clear that the city harbors more than its fair share of passions and motives. And one question echoes loudly throughout the cobbled streets: why did Dr. Hardene, the local GP of impeccable reputation, bring a revolver with him on a routine visit to a patient?
