When millionaire American financier, Sigsbee Manderson, is found dead in the garden of his English country house on the south-west coast, amateur detective Philip Trent is sent by a London newspaper to investigate. Why did Manderson rise in the middle of the night and venture outside? Why is his young widow seemingly relieved at his death? The newly widowed Mabel Manderson, ‘The Lady in Black’, soon has a disarming effect on the fallible and imaginative gentleman sleuth, who together with Scotland Yard Inspector Murth set about solving this puzzling case.
