Excerpt

ir; every moment that passes! I am terribly afraid for Father's life, even as I have told Mr. Narkom here. But there are some things which a woman cannot tell. Those things which she feels in her heart--and has no concrete facts with which to explain them. Father will die if you do not come to my rescue immediately. He will die, and by no natural means. I tell you, my father is being poisoned slowly, and because of his very taciturnity none of us can save him! Even now, as I sit here, something tells me that things are not right with him, or with Ross, my brother! All my life long I have had these premonitions. There must be gipsy blood in me, I think. But there it is. Oh, help me to save him, to save my brother Ross's inheritance. And my blessing will go with you to the end of your days!"

****.

Another detective Cleek mystery.
The lights go out and there is a sound from the spinning wheel.
A father is murdered.
His son has the best motive.
The Spinning Wheel: An old curse says, that when the Spinning Wheel spins by itself, someone will die.

Detective Cleek (he of the forty faces), an old house and a murder. What else could you want?
