The Vortex, 2307 Manor Road

Clarissa, the wife of a Foreign Office diplomat, is given to daydreaming. “Supposing I were to come down one morning and find a dead body in the library, what should I do?” Clarissa muses. Then one morning she does discover a body… as well as a desk with a secret drawer and hidden doors to the library.

It becomes necessary to dispose of the body before her husband comes home with an important foreign politician, so Clarissa persuades her three houseguests to become accessories and accomplices. It seems that the murdered man was not unknown to certain members of the house party (but which ones?), and the search begins for the murderer and the motive, while at the same time trying to persuade a police inspector that there has been no murder at all.
