Another Case for Superintendent Anthony Slade Rosa Lee, adventuress and woman of mystery, is stabbed to death at her home, the Yellow Bungalow, while Martin Dare, the African explorer, is spending a few days with friends close by.
She was murdered with an Arab dagger Dare had presented to his host.
When Detective-Inspector Anthony Slade, Mr Gribble’s well-known detective, arrives on the scene he finds that four people might have committed the crime. Their alibis depended upon one another, their motives were strong, and two of them had visited the murdered woman secretly within a few minutes of the actual killing. Which of them was the murderer? Or was there some one unknown? Slade’s investigation soon revealed others who might have committed the crime, but somehow he was not satisfied with the theories he tried out. Actually he had made a brilliant piece of deduction and it was this that led him astray. But he solves the riddle in the end, and in his usual dramatic fashion.
