While mama keeps an iron grasp on the purse strings, an unmarried daughter sucks greedily on her own disappointment, a son raises corruption to an art form, and an ethereal daughter-in-law casts come-hither glances at anything in pants. She casts them frequently at young Paul Vandervent, who responds by filling his journal with fevered love poems. And when one member after another of the family falls victim to "gastric misadventure," and his beloved falls under suspicion, Paul embarks on a quest to clear her name, resolving to solve "the extraordinary series of crimes popularly called The Blackheath Poisonings."

Two Englishmen have met suspicious ends in Venice--one by gunshot, the other by drowning. That much is certain but nothing else is. Murder? Suicide? Accident? In a quiet English village, anonymous notes spread scandal though false word of an affair between Derek Crowley and Gerda Porson. She is the wife of Crowley's business partner, the unspeakable Charles Porson, a tireless macho who adores handguns and the spanking-and-bondage ritual meted out by his bored, disgusted wife, who is in love only with his money. Was the drug-laced Bloody Mary intended for Porson? How to explain Derek's wife's penchant for masculine clothing? Who loaded the supposedly blank pistol in an amateur theatrical production? Long afterward, Jason Durling's brilliant deductive sleuthing will resolve the murders left unsolved by trhe Italian police and ignored by Scotland Yard; but he will come to great grief in his turn.
