Storyline

Lord Peter and Bunter travel to Grimthorpe's farm to seek evidence, but a fast-moving fog engulfs them, and they become separated. Wimsey becomes stuck in quicksand and needs the help of Bunter and two of Grimthorpe's farmhands to survive. Mrs. Grimthorpe convinces her misanthropic husband to allow Wimsey to recover there, where he discovers a piece of evidence that is crucial to his brother's defense. Written by duke1029@aol.com
