Summary of the Book 'A House To Let Et Al':

The Red House stately mansion home of Mark Ablett is filled with very proper guests when Marks most improper brother returns from Australia. When the maid hears an argument in the study it isnt long before the brother dies... of a bullet between the eyes! Strangely the study has been locked from the inside and Mark Ablett is missing. Only an investigator with remarkable powers of observation could hope to resolve this mystery and Antony Gillingham (with cheerful Bill Beverly at his side) is just the man.
