Sample text

Is this a practical joke or an invitation to a murder game? At the appointed hour several of them do turn up at Little Paddocks, home of Letitia Blacklock, to await developments. 30, the lights go out, a man, apparently clutching a revolver, shouts, ‘Stick ‘em up’ in a voice reminiscent of American gangster films and shots ring out. When the lights go back on again, Miss Blacklock is found slightly wounded and the intruder is lying dead in the room. Detective Inspector Craddock, investigating the murder, discovers that most of the people gathered at Little Paddocks that evening have secrets to hide but he is powerless to prevent further killings in the village.

The colonel leaves the jewel to his young niece, Rachel Verinder, and a gentleman named Franklin Blake travels to her Yorkshire home to present her with it as an eighteenth birthday present. On the eve of the birthday the fated diamond is once again stolen and Collins’s story (told, like many of his novels, from a number of different perspectives) begins to unfold. Mysterious Hindus, exotic visitors to the Yorkshire countryside, are glimpsed in the neighbourhood; servants fall under suspicion as Cuff pursues his investigation into the theft; Franklin Blake falls under the dangerous spell of opium; and a pious hypocrite named Godfrey Ablewhite plots and schemes in the background.

As he muscles his way into the LA rackets, he teams up with the beautiful, equally bibulous S. Grandquist, her past as mysterious as her first name, and together they take on rival gangs, before bringing down the curtain in a booze-fuelled explosion of violence and death. After penning stories for other pulp magazines, as well as several more for Black Mask, some of which were subsequently collected and published in 1946 as Seven Slayers (his only other book), Cain returned to writing screenplays under the name Peter Ruric.
