Storyline

Mary Wimsey, sister of the Duke of Denver and Lord Peter, becomes engaged to the Parisian-based David Cathcart. After the wedding date's been set, the Duke receives a letter from an old friend who just read the newspaper announcement. It accuses Cathcart of being a card cheat in France. Templers flare, and Cathcart breaks off the engagement and leaves the house. When he is found shot to death, suspicion falls on Denver, and he's arrested. Written by duke1029@aol.com
