Biggles takes a rare holiday, in the Cornish village of Polstow. He ends up giving unofficial help to the local police dealing with the murder of a young woman
As the title suggests this adventure does not feature Algy, Ginger or Bertie. Air Commodore Raymond insists that Biggles takes a holiday and books him into a hotel he knows in Polstow, on the South Cornish coast. After a while relaxing, the village is shaken by the death of a young woman called Vera Harrington. She is found dead in her home in mysterious circumstances and the local community is shocked by her murder. Biggles can't help being drawn into making discreet enquires about the matter as he is intrigued. He doesn't want to interfere but the local Police Chief Superintendent is happy to discuss the case with him, as he knows he is a detective from Scotland Yard.
