Summary Blueprint for murder: When his niece dies of the same mysterious symptoms that killed her father, no one suspects the little girl may have been poisoned. No one, that is, except her uncle, Whitney Cameron. He believes the child's stepmother may be her killer. Discovering that she intends to inherit her husband's estate by eliminating both her stepchildren, Whitney proceeds with a perilous plan to prevent his greedy sister-in-law from getting away with murder.
Man in the attic: A madman is savagely murdering the sauciest showgirls in London. Slade is a decidedly creepy medical pathologist in London during the most diabolical serial killings of all time.
