While playing golf, Bobby Jones and Dr. Thomas discover a dying man at the base of the cliff. The man manages to get out the words Why didn't they ask Evans? before he dies. Bobby is in a hurry to keep an appointment, so he asks a passerby to stay with the body. Just days later, he meets up with childhood friend Lady Frances (Frankie) Derwent. A few days after the inquest, Bobby is drugged when someone slips morphine into his beer. Remembering things now that don't seem to match up about the death, Bobby decides to investigate the matter further and Frankie immediately agrees to help. The two of them are soon hard at work to discover the murderer of the dead man, and they soon must also protect themselves as they find their own lives in danger. Actress Emilia Fox reads this vintage Christie mystery with dramatic panache.
