Economist James Broom is shot with an arrow by one of a group dressed as Robin Hood whilst on his way to meet a man opposed to his Utopian vision of a new Europe. The trail leads the Avengers to St. Bode's College, where anarchic students oppose traditional schools of thought. Could one of these have killed Broom? All is revealed at a fancy dress party where everyone is a character from the Robin Hood legend.

Did You Know?
Each time one of the characters mentions the name of the university, St. Bodes, their voices are dubbed. In the case of Grindley the archivist (John Glyn-Jones
), his entire voice changes. When Pettit drops some of the theses in the archive, the one on top reveals the original name to be 'St. Bedes College'. It was most likely changed to avoid confusion with the actual St. Bedes College in Manchester, England. See more
Steed. So you've finally decided on your costume. The Sheriff of, eh... Bashful Ben?
Well, I hate to mention, in all the books I've read, the Sheriff is a baddy.
Beneath this doublet beats a generous heart.
