Inspector Drake and his sidekick Sergeant Plod return in their most perplexing case yet, confronting everything from missing tortoises, to triplets, to deadly tropical spiders

All these questions and more form the basis for another thrilling ride in the company of the world's greatest detective, as he attempts to solve the murder whilst also avoiding his own
